Bookmark this one for Trey Gowdy – This is like a reverse operation Zero Footprint. Egyptian military forces locate a weapons cache’ located in the upper Egyptian mountainous region near Aswan. Why this is important is several fold:
Firstly, because of their location these are most likely 500 U.S. missiles (MANPADS) and 25 Iranian Rockets – both bound for Gaza in support of Hamas.
Secondly, because most likely the U.S. provided these missiles in the former Clinton / Panetta operation “Zero Footprint” in Libya and then Syria.
So think about it. Hamas and the Brotherhood are using Clinton’s Libyan missiles against Israel to kill Jewish people. Meanwhile, Egypt -through el-Sisi- intercepts the brotherhood, destroys Gaza border tunnels, removes rockets and missiles and fights the radical islamists on both sides of the country.
Is it any wonder why Egypt tells John Kerry and President Obama to stay out. And yet pundits wonder why Egyptian’s don’t like this administration ?… go figure.
EGYPT – Egyptian security forces have seized a large number of anti-aircraft rockets and missiles in a mountainous area in the southern governorate of Aswan, state news agency MENA reported.
Forces found 25 anti-aircraft rockets and 500 missiles early on Monday in Wadi Al-Naqra, northeast of Aswan, MENA said without elaborating.
Since the ouster of Islamist president Mohamed Morsi last summer, Egypt has been hit by an Islamist insurrection, based mainly in the border Sinai Peninsula, adjoining Israel and the Palestinian Gaza Strip.
Last month, security forces seized 20 Grad rockets along with their launching pads being smuggled in from the Gaza Strip through a tunnel by militants in northern Sinai.
Also in July, gunmen killed 21 Egyptian border guards near the frontier with Libya.
Authorities have grown wary over the rising security threat from the burgeoning militancy in Sinai and a violent spillover from the neighbouring strife-torn Libya where militia fighting has worsened in recent weeks. (read more)
