An Israeli website alleged to be close to the Mossad spy agency has claimed that the leader of the coup in Egypt, General Abdul-Fattah Al-Sisi, receives intelligence on the movements of the Jihadists in Sinai from Mossad and America's CIA. A detailed report about this has revealed detailed information about the military formation and the weapons used by the Egyptian army in their fight with the so-called Jihadists and Al-Qaeda supporters.
The operations in Sinai, it is claimed, are being aimed at the Jihadists, who have started to target the Suez Canal. They are also threatening to attack targets across the border in Israel.
Egyptian forces have started a wide-scale military operation in Sinai against "terrorists and Palestinian infiltrators". They have also been busy demolishing tunnels leading to the besieged Gaza Strip.
Although the Egyptian authorities claim that the tunnels with Gaza were used for smuggling weapons, they were actually used to smuggle food and other basic necessities. The people of Gaza are now experiencing even harsher living conditions as the siege has been tightened with the post-coup tunnel and border closures.
