Informed sources from the security directorate in northern Sinai revealed that additional reinforcements of counterterrorism forces are being sent to regions that have seen security pursuits of armed elements belonging to takfiri groups and Ansar Beit al-Maqdis, east and south of Arish, Rafah and Sheikh Zuweid.
The sources confirmed that the El Gorah North Base Camp is the staging area for vital protection in the village of El Gorah and there is no truth to what is being published by news sites about the withdrawal of forces from this camp. The sources indicated that additional reinforcements of soldiers and equipment are being made.
Residents said that in the past few days terrorist groups tried to target these reinforcements with mortar shells, one of which fell next to a residential building, which was saved from production by divine providence.
