Times of Israel – Militants clashed with the Egyptian army in the northern Sinai peninsula Sunday, on the second day of a major offensive aiming at quelling an insurgency in the lawless region.
An Egyptian official said helicopter gunships targeted the villages of el-Mahdiya and el-Moqataa near the towns of Rafah and Sheikh Zuweyid on the border with the Gaza Strip. Three US-made Apache helicopters fired rockets, hitting shacks, houses and cars used by militants, the official said.
