A senior Egyptian police officer was shot dead by unknown gunmen who ambushed his car in the Sinai Peninsula town of El Arish on Saturday, June 29th.
Three masked gunmen in a vehicle opened fire with automatic weapons on the officer, Brigadier General Mohamed Hani.

His twin brother Mohammad Ashraf Mustafa works at the Ministry of Education in Alexandria and his father is retired military.
Sinai has become a breeding ground for jihadists. Nearly all the people in El Arish support Mohamed Morsi and his Muslim Brotherhood thugs.
Morsi disclosed a bombers hit list against officers in El Arish to rattle and intimidate them.
A number of targeted assassinations have occurred since Morsi came to power and the Egyptian military command had enough and ordered the coup, or see themselves gradually eliminated by the Muslim Brotherhood.
Morsi was targeting his political opponents? No wonder why 0bama loves him so much!
Pretty well known from open source information that this has been going on from day one. The real question is why the military waited so long; probably a combination of things, not least of which was allowing the idiot Morsi enough rope to hang himself with his own incompetence and corruption.
Al Queda has active camps in the Sinai desert. This was an Al Queda hit methinks.
Why doesn’t the military just fuel and arm a few jets and go visit the terrorist camps? Good target practice.
"Behind the Violence, Says Jane Alpert, Was Sex"
--November 09, 1981--
"The leaders of the Weather Underground, she believes, followed a similar pattern of constantly shifting sexual alliances..."
"...the Weathermen, when not engaged in group sex, committed such revolutionary acts as parading with a Viet Cong flag through a local park on Independence Day and spray-painting the walls of a high school with the slogans, "Off the Pigs," "Viet Cong Will Win," and "F#$k U.S. Imperialism."..."
The Egyptian military was promised by Morsi that he would get money out of the Saudi’s. Which he did, 1.5 billion in 3 - .5 billion chunks.
The last .5 billion, Morsi scored about a month ago. However, Morsi was told by the Saudi’s, no more for at least a year. So the military knew that Morsi’s use as a bag man was over.
Morsi hears about the military grumbling and two weeks ago got the Saudi’s to send enough fuel to open up all the closed gas stations, that had closed over the last year.
Wasn’t good enough, when Hani was assassinated, that tipped over the Generals.
BTW, the media has completely missed this story and has ignored the influence of the Copts.
The Christian Copts are said to be about 10% of the population but are in fact closer to 18% and they control about 65% of Egypt’s wealth.
Combine them with the military that controls about 25% of Egypt’s wealth and the salafists are not going to hold onto power unless they rule wisely, which they have not.
AQ = salafists = Muslim Botherhood = Morsi
They are all very comfortable with each other and communicate well with Hamas.
Very hard to tell the terrorists as they blend in with the Bedouin so well.
Thanks for the backgrounder and insights.
