JNS.org – Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu reaffirmed Israel’s joint commitment to fighting terrorism with Egypt following a wave of Islamic State-affiliated terror attacks in Egypt’s Sinai Peninsula.

“We are partners with Egypt and with many other countries in the Middle East and in the world in the fight against extremist Islamist terror,” Netanyahu said during a visit with Israeli terror victims in Jerusalem.

“The terror is knocking at our doors. ISIS is not only on our border in the Golan, but it is also in Egypt, across from Rafah, directly at our border,” added Netanyahu.

According to reports, the Islamic State-affiliated “Sinai Province” terror group, which was formerly known as Ansar Bait al-Maqdis, has launched a wave of terrorist attacks in the northern Sinai that has killed at least 64 Egyptian army soldiers and civilians, Ahram Onlinereported. Egypt has responded by killing 90 terrorists through F-16 airstrikes and other military action, mainly around the city of Sheikh Zuweid.
