They’re taking a page out of the Turks playbook.
The Egyptians are upping the ante with their blind eye approval to the attack on Israel by Gaza PRC terrorists infiltrating from the Sinai desert. They came from Gaza, had Egyptian uniforms and now a huge ruckus has ensued from the fallout of the attack which left 8 Israelis dead after the IDF began their hunt for the terrorists, it’s still unclear where the Egyptian security forces were encountered and what took place.
This is all a replay of what used take place in the 50’s through the 70’s, as terrorists would frequently hit the Jewish state from neighboring countries in hope of causing a major response against an Arab state. It looks like that, as well as the launching of rockets are to be their favored modus operandi for the near future. It didn’t take Egypt too long to use a situation like this as the needed casus belli to create new strife in their relations with the Jews. KGS
