In a dramatic demonstration of its expanding reach, ISIS apparently launched simultaneous attacks Wednesday on five Egyptian military checkpoints, reportedly killing 17 Egyptian soldiers and injuring 30 others.Here.
As of Wednesday night, the Egyptian military is "100% in control" of the situation in the northern Sinai, an Egyptian armed forces spokesman told state-run news agency MENA.
At least 17 security forces, including four police officers, were killed in the attacks, the Egptian military said on its Facebook page.
The spokesman for the Egyptian military said 100 terrorists had been killed.
The Islamic State in Iraq and Syria was known exclusively for its activities in those two war-torn countries until recently.
ISIS isn't being degraded, is on a rampage and is threatening to destabilize more nations. Add the ISIS issue to the Turkey and Jordan "buffer zones"...mix it with the Iran negotiations, consider the setbacks that Saudi Arabia is suffering in Yemen (yeah you forgot about that little conflict huh? Info Infantrie has been sending me vids that I haven't posted about Saudi AMX-30's being destroyed and captured by rebels)...
Then consider the latest round of saber rattling by Russia, and a China that must be watched and the obvious becomes crystal clear.
Our strategy isn't working.
