Egyptian Army foils Islamic State attack on checkpoint in northern Sinai
[ALMASDARNEWS] On Thursday, gunnies loyal to the Islamic State

reportedly launched an assault against government forces in a sparsely populated area west of Sheikh Zuweid, a predominately Bedouin town near the Gazoo Strip.

As ISIS gunnies attempted to infiltrate a military checkpoint on the perimeter of Qabr Omair village, the Egyptian Army rushed reinforcements to the area and managed to hold its ground before driving the jihadist gunnies back into the vast desert of Sinai Province.

Although heavy festivities were reported to have taken place by local sources, the exact corpse count on either side remains unbeknownst to al-Masdar News.

On Saturday, Egypt was struck by one of its worst terror attacks in years after ISIS gunnies detonated a massive bomb inside the Rawdah mosque and opened fire upon civilians in the town of Bir al-Abed, also located in northern Sinai.

According to officials, 305 Egyptian people were killed and a further 128 civilians maimed during the attack. Sadly, 27 children were among the dead.

Roadside bomb kills 5 pro-govt fighters in South Waziristan
[DAWN] A roadside kaboom killed five pro-government fighters and maimed two others in South Wazoo on Thursday evening, hours after a suspected United States drone struck a bad boy compound near Pak-Afghan border area, killing three suspected bad boys, officials said.

The evening incident took place in South Waziristan's Spinkai area near the Afghan border when a group of pro-government fighters was returning from a function.

Their vehicle was attacked using a remotely detonated bomb, said intelligence officials. The officials said the group was part of a volunteers' militia helping the military in operations against terrorists. The intelligence officials spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorised to speak to the media.

They said the group's leader, Wali Jan, had earlier survived a suicide kaboom but continued to play a role in fighting Talibs.

The two maimed men were moved to a military hospital, they said.

Umar Arshad, an assistant administrator in South Waziristan, confirmed the intelligence officials' account.

IDF soldier stabbed to death in Arad in suspected terror attack
[Ynet] Soldier found outside mall in the northern city of Arad with stab wounds; paramedics declare him dead on scene; police says murder was likely nationalistically-motivated; search ongoing for suspects.

A soldier who was waiting for the bus was stabbed to death outside the mall in Arad on Thursday night in what police said was likely a nationalistically-motivated murder.

The soldier, in his 20s, tried to call for help after having been fatally stabbed, collapsing on top of a car.

"I was driving and all of a sudden a soldier ran to me, blocking my car in the middle of a traffic circle," the driver said. "I didn't understand what was happening. I noticed he started throwing up. I was sure he was drunk. I stopped, and all of a sudden I saw he was throwing up blood on my car. I stopped and called for help."

"He was conscious and tried to say something but couldn't," the driver continued. "We tried to help him, he fell to the ground. We called Magen David Adom and put a towel on him."

Paramedics who arrived on the scene found the soldier unconscious and without a pulse. After resuscitation attempts failed, he was declared dead.

Police were searching the area for suspects, setting up roadblocks on route 31 and in the entrance to the city. A helicopter was also scrambled to help search. Shin Bet and IDF forces were also deployed to help police in search for the perpetrators.

Among other things, security forces are trying to ascertain whether the soldier's weapon was stolen.

An eye witness recounted the incident, saying "Someone came up to the soldier from behind and stabbed him. I saw him lying down (on the ground). My friend called me over when it happened, he tried to stop the bleeding with a towel."
The Times of Israel reports two assailants are being hunted for this terror attack.
