#Egypt- 2 militants conducted drive-by shooting targeting police checkpoint inside the city of #Ismailia, al-Salam District, late last night, killing 3 policemen & wounding 13 others. 1 of the militants was killed in subsequent clashes

This is a very significant incident. The last successful militant attack by an organization in Mainland #Egypt was November 2019 and that was Hasam. #ISIS's (likely culprit of recent attack) latest attack in the mainland was February 2019 (!)

Sure, there is the seemingly mitigating circumstances of #Ismailia being on the Suez Canal and therefore very close to Wilayat #Sinai's AO, but it's not as simple as that

Remembering the #SixDayWar, #Egypt didn’t just lose #Sinai, it lost its progressiveness and opened the gate to #Islamism that slowly controlled its society like a cancer that is hard to uproot.
We regained Sinai, but until we regain our modernity, Egypt will continue to struggle
Immediately after the #SixDayWar, Islamists creeped in, claiming that we lost the war, not because of reckless Nasser, but because #Egypt became godless decedent society. They preached that victory will only happen when women wear hijab, and religiosity dominate! 2/
In 1971, Sadat didn’t just release many Islamists imprisoned under Nasser, he changed the constitution, asserting that Islam is *the* source of all legislations.
This *the* is what Islamists still use to argue for enforcing Sharia on society.

The location of the attack is also significant - near area el-Qantara, on the east bank of the Suez Canal. Just last month, the Egyptians boasted a record-high montly revenue from the passage of ships, and that is likely why... (2/4)
ISIS Sinai chose to attack an Egyptian outpost near a water station on the banks of the canal.

Despite Egyptian marketing, ISIS Sinai expands its influence outside of its stronghold in the north-eastern part of the Sinai penninsula, moving west.

#Thread 🧵
Out of all #Egypt’s weekly news, the influx of Israeli tourists to Sinai for #Passover caught the attention of many Egyptians and triggered mixed responses. 1/
Qatar’s Al-Jazeera has published this clip about the long queue of Israelis waiting to enter #Egypt’s #Sinai.
As usual, many Al-Jazeera followers are full of prejudice, and they were not happy, even spouting replies with hints of anti-semitism 2/
To label Israelis, not by their nationality, but by their religion as “Jews”, is in my book antisemitism.
Never thought that some of them are Druze or Baha’i for example?! 3/

#ISIS has released the anticipated audio recording featuring its top spokesman Abu Hamza al-Qurashi, titled, “So Narrate [to them] Stories [of the past] so Perhaps They Will Reflect.”
Abu Hamza criticizes Islamic scholars who “misguide” people and preach against #ISIS, saying that they’ll “regret” supporting “tyrants” while they condemn the mujahideen. Typical stuff here.
Abu Hamza condemns the recent peace accords between Israel and UAE and Bahrain, as well as Saudi Arabia opening air space, refuting old conspiracies about #ISIS being a creation of Israel.

Hoy el calendario litúrgico católico celebra una solemnidad muy especial: la de la #Transfiguración. ¿Qué os parece acercarnos a ella a través de este icono bizantino? ¡Dentro #HilodeArte! Image
Hablar de iconos no es hablar de cuadros, sino de una realidad trascendente. El #icono no es un mero objeto artístico sino que tiene valor litúrgico y la misión de introducir al espectador en el #misterio que recrea.
Por eso, aunque os he traído el icono que el gran #Rubliov hizo en 1405 y se conserva en la Catedral de la Anunciación de #Moscú, podría servirnos cualquier otro icono, pues todos siguen la misma composición. Por ejemplo, estos de los siglos XV y XVI: ImageImageImage

#Egypt threatening war not just in 1 country but 2-#Ethiopia & #Libya-telling us it's got "strongest military force in Middle East AND North Africa". Meanwhile, it's failed to quash a few thousands militants in #Sinai for how many years now under Sisi?
We all get that water supply is critical for #Egypt, legit issues to duke out w Ethiopia, but notion that it needs to do anything more than secure its border w Libya is bogus waste of Egyptian resources, and soon lives. This is UAE political dictate, pure and simple.
Meanwhile, Egypt government reps complain bitterly about Turkey's forces in Libya, arguing they have no legit interests "1000s of miles away from their country", but have nary a word about UAE troops & bombs in Libya, given UAE is even many more 1000s of miles away than Turkey.

[Thread] #ISIS snipers in #Egypt|ian #Sinai province #ISIS-SP.

They operate mainly in the northeastern coastal areas of the peninsula and are well known and regarded as some of the best snipers of ISIS.

Their most commonly used weapons are Romanian PSL DMRs with their 1/15
standard scope and no modifications. The Egyptian military uses PSL only very limited, so they could get some of them, but probably not all, other sources are smuggled from Libya or bought from militant Palestinian groups in Gaza. 2/15
A rarely used rifle is the SVD Dragunov DMR which was probably captured, bought or stolen by the Egyptian military. A similarly rarely used rifle is an FAL, which is mostly equipped with a Picatiny Scope mount and a rifle scope. They were obtained in the same way as the SVD. 3/15
