Egypt army, civilian govt. divided on tackling security deterioration in Sinai

20 Egyptian border guards have been killed in the Sinai. The Israeli MOSSAD are responsible for the attack while others blame jihadist groups.

The Egyptian military force and the Israelis will cooperate with that to certain extent, but a very dangerous few weeks to come - a tinder box - we haven’t seen the end by any means of this crisis, which of course does have roots. It goes back to the radicalization of the Bedouin, they took over a hotel near Sharm el-Sheikh, they attacked foreign tourists; there’s a lot of anarchy going on inside Sinai.
Egyptian security forces stand by their Armoured Personell Carriers ahead of a military operation in the northern Sinai peninsula on August 08, 2012.  


Update:


New clashes have broken out between Egyptian police and gunmen outside a police station in the Sinai town of El-Erish.

Egypt’s Muslim Brotherhood and the Palestinian resistance movement Hamas say Israeli spy agency Mossad was behind the border attack.
