President Abdul Fattah al-Sisi has declared three days of mourning in the wake of the suspected jihadist attacks.
Egypt’s Rafah crossing into the Gaza Strip was also closed, state TV said. It was the biggest loss of life in decades for Egypt’s army, which has been carrying out an offensive against jihadists in northern Sinai.
The area has become increasingly lawless since President Hosni Mubarak was overthrown in 2011. Militants have stepped up attacks since Islamist President Mohammed Morsi was ousted by the army last year.
Egypt in mourning
There has been no claim of responsibility for Friday’s suicide blast at an army checkpoint that killed 28 soldiers.
At least 28 others were injured in the attack near El Arish, the main town in the north of the restive peninsula.
Three more soldiers died in a separate shooting at a checkpoint in the town itself.

When the West hailed the Facsist Muslim Brotherhood as the spiritual leaders of the “the Arab Spring”. the west prove that it understands nothing about Fascism. For Israel the Islamic takeover of Egypt became the largest security risk since the Yum Kippur war in 1973. Thousands of rockets would now, freely, be transported into Gaza, through the open Rafah crossing.
The horrible terror attack in Sinai can only be condemed as an act of barbarians. It is one more fruit of the the true face of Islam. But if we shall search for a positive spin-off, there is an obvious one. The Rafa crossing is again closed, and the Hamas-regime isolated from the rest of the World.
Pro-Islamic Norway and the Islamic dictatorship of Qatar will surely protest the closure of Egypt’s border with Gaza. These two sponsors of islamic insurgency and terror have already pledged 5,4 billion USD to the continuation of Jihad against Israel. Now the military regime of Egypt has derailed their plan of rearming the Hamas.
The same “friends of the Hamas” has not pledge a single penny for the reconstruction of Syria. Nor have they pledge a penny for the victimes of Islamic terror, whom have been crippled i Central and North Africa and the Middle East.
Jesus the Messiah said bluntly that people love darkness, because their deeds are evil. But all who live in the light, will continue to support the work of God of Israel. He is the rock of the Jewish state. He is the Messiah, and the light of our salvation.
This is the verdict: Light has come into the world, but people loved darkness instead of light because their deeds were evil.
Stand up for the truth, and keep on exposing the forces of darkness. Those men who support Hamas and other Islamic terror organization, just got the blood of 28 Egyptian soldiers on their hands.
