Clashes between Egyptian army and ISIS in the Sinai intensifies

The number of stories of deadly clashes between Egyptian army forces and ISIS has been increasing lately.

In late July,  militants from "ISIS" ambushed a checkpoint in the northern part of Sinai, killing at least 5 security personnel.

On August 9, an Egyptian brigadier general was killed when an explosive device exploded in an Egyptian army vehicle in Rafah.

Eight more Egyptian soldiers were killed in Rafah on Thursday evening. Egypt says it killed 13 ISIS members.

This is a low-intensity war that no one is really talking about. But it is happening on Israel's doorstep.
