Essential Geopolitics: Terror Attack in Sinai
MIN READMay 17, 2022 | 10:00 GMT
In this episode of RANE's Essential Geopolitics podcast, Ryan Bohl (in for host Emily Donahue) gets a threat briefing from RANE analyst Charles Thorson. They discuss a recent attack in Egypt. Thorson says Islamic State militants reportedly attacked a checkpoint in Qantara, in northeastern Sinai. The attack killed 11 Egyptian soldiers and shows that Wilayat Sinai retains some militant capabilities and may launch a renewed terrorism campaign in the event of a crackdown.
