4 Sinai civilians killed after Egypt army bombs house

MEMO | October 21, 2019

At least four civilians have been killed and 12 injured after a bomb was dropped on a house in Abu Al-Araj, Sheikh Zuweid, on Saturday.

Ten-year-old Mohammed Masoud, 90-year-old Farha Ibrahim, 24-year-old Aya Juma Eid and 28 year-old Rania Juma Eid all died in the drone attack in Egypt’s northern Sinai Peninsula.

For years now the Egyptian government has waged a war on Sinai it says is against terrorism, but which locals say is a war on civilians aimed at systematically displacing them from their land.

In the last seven years 14 villages in Sheikh Zuweid have been razed by the Egyptian military. According to a Facebook post written by Sinai researcher Ahmed Salem:

There is no such thing as a random aerial bombing and there is no such thing as a flight that makes mistakes 20 times in the coordination and rockets directed with modern technologies, the error rate is almost zero; the village has 20 or 30 homes and you know them by name.

The aggression continues across the peninsula. Just one week ago a shell hit a truck carrying civilians from an olive farm to the city of Bir Al-Abd as they were travelling home, killing at least ten people from the same family. Six others were injured and taken to hospital.

Following the attack the Arabic hashtag “Al-Sisi kills Sinai residents” was one of the top trending in the country.

A photograph of a baby with cuts on his head circulated online – the only survivor after the rest of his family died.

According to activists, the Egyptian government has been trying to remove the population of Bir Al-Abed for months now. Locals fear it will become the next Rafah, a city along the border with Gaza that has been completely flattened and the population displaced.

On 30 September the Egyptian military killed a six-year-old boy and his father in a revenge attack after Daesh attacked the Toffaha military checkpoint in Bir Al-Abed.

Suleyman Abu Dabbous, who works in a petrol station, was on his way home with his son Karim, 24, and his six-year-old grandson when the army opened fire on the car.

  1. I remember when Egypt was the leader of the “UNITED ARAB REPUBLIC”…..It is now pro Israel(along with Saudi Arabia). It’s amazing how Israel “Gets its way”, every time……..with the backing of the USA, which is itself under the heavy influence(bordering on total control) of Israel.

  2. It is not Egyptians doing this! Al-Sisi is a crypto Jew, whose relatives were in the Haganah during the Nakba. That’s why he was put in power by the same forces behind all the “color” revolutions.

    What we are seeing here is the furtherance of the Yinon plan (“from the Euphrates to the Nile).

    No one said anything when the Golan was stolen form Syria and when the northeast of Syria is controlled by their puppets, and no one will say anything about this, just as no one says anything about the ongoing genocide of Palestinians.

    History shows that no one said anything when the same people murdered 60-70 million Orthodox Christians in Russia in the twentieth century.

    It’s never political. It’s always the war between good and evil.
