Posted on 10/03/2013 8:45:00 AM PDT by kimtom
The Egyptian army has planned military attacks on specific targets in the Gaza Strip in the event that the security situation in the northern Sinai peninsula deteriorates, a senior Egyptian security official told the Ma'an news agency.
The source said that Egyptian reconnaissance planes had photographed the potential targets. According to intelligence sources, the Egyptian Army would attack from the air.
The plan to attack targets in Gaza is based on the Egyptian assessment that some of the attacks in the northern Sinai, especially in El Arish and in Rafah were carried out by armed Palestinians based in Gaza.
The security source said that the Egyptian Army is specifically targeting the extremist groups in Gaza who are regarded as hostile and it does not view the entire population there in this way.
The recent attack on the intelligence center in Rafah was carried out by the extremist Gaza groups, the source told Ma'an.
Last week Egypt opened the Rafah crossing, its main border with the Gaza Strip after it was closed........

I agree. Obama is saddened by the news. He got rebuked in Egypt when they threw out his buddies in the Muslim Brotherhood.
Egypt won’t play as nice as Israel.
The undocumented Tryant, the DNC,
and their RINO toadies, are NOT going to like this.
Enemy of my enemy and all that. Let’s not get complacent. The Generals aren’t the ‘good guys’, but just the better bad guys.
This should result in an interesting UN condemnation.
That is true.
you know, I might think that, but...who says they are bad??? MB???
There are an awful lot of Coptic's that support the army take over.
wouldn't we want the army to enforce the constitutional constraints on our leaders...??
(just a thought)
only if the bad guys lose to much.....
I don’t think Gumby can do much about this though.
Paging Rachel Corrie....
Something tells me Isreal will just stand by and watch the show.
Damn Jews attacking the innocent Palistonians again.
Can’t say I blame them.
It’s about time. The Egypts created that Gaaaaza mess in the first place by sending their indesirables there. Then spent decades ignoring the problem. You gotta give the E-Army a little credit. When they got sick recently of the problems caused by south side tunnel smuggling they started shutting them down by disposing of their sewage in them. A tunnel full of camel poo has got to be a deterrent to tunnel running. None of this would ever have developed if Israel had kept the whole Sinai. Thank you Jimmah Cahta for insisting they give it back.
This is what happens when a bunch of lunatics create the world’s largest open air reverse mental asylum, rapaciously inbreed, and work as hard as they can to make their own inbred, genetically defective spawn into mass murdering psychotics.
Thednc call center that received donations from visa cards with the identity check removed was there...anyonegot the address so wecaninform Cairo?
The Arab countries of the Mid-East detest the Persians of Iran for as far back as you can carry a grudge. Perhaps the Israelis could caulk up the Iranian nuclear ambitions by signing a nonaggression pact with Egypt and offering "technical assistance"? They do have a history of cooperation if not exactly friendship. After all, politics does make strange bed fellows...
Nope, that would mean our system of government had totally failed. I think in America we can walk this doggie back without a coup.
...in the event that the security situation in the northern Sinai peninsula deteriorates... The source said that Egyptian reconnaissance planes had photographed the potential targets. According to intelligence sources, the Egyptian Army would attack from the air.Israel needs to keep an eye on this.
How’d that work out for them last time?
Russia, Syria and now Egypt! Wow! I never thought I would be pulling for these countries! Anything to embarrass & humiliate & defeat the RAT bastard commie muzlim pig 0dumb0. The enemy of 0dumb0 is a friend to me!
Something tells me that there are IDF and Mossad liasons working directly with Egyptian military leaders ... Providing intel, targeting assistance, etc.
Pearl-clutching from the ruling class to commence shortly.
Hey Egyptian Army. The first rule of war is DON’T TELL THE ENEMY WHERE YOU ARE GOING TO ATTACK.
Fire any Obama people you hired and do your own thing.
If youd like to be on or off, please FR mail me.
I look forward to the press coverage.

Sen. Rand Paul is hammering his fellow senators for keeping billions in financial aid flowing to Egypt’s military — even as Cairo’s security forces massacre anti-government activists.
[by “anti-government activists” is meant church-burning jihadists]
