Morsy promises: Sinai attackers will pay dearly
Egyptian President Mohamed Morsy on Sunday night vowed revenge against the perpetrators of a raid on an Egyptian military base that killed 15 soldiers and wounded seven. The attackers also tried to strike Israeli targets in a cross-border raid, prompting Israeli officials to call for Egypt to restore order to the increasingly lawless Sinai Peninsula.
"This cowardly attack will not go without a response," Morsy said according to AFP. "Those who committed this crime will pay it dearly." The Egyptian president called an urgent meeting of Egypt's Supreme Council of the Armed Forces following the attack.
Global jihad terrorists broke into an Egyptian military base on Sunday evening, opening fire on Egyptian soldiers. The terrorists also stole two armored jeeps and used them to initiate a cross-border attack into Israel.
