The Battle Cver Sinai: ISIS’s Next Strong Force

I’m happy to share with you the investigative report we published this week about the Ansar Beit al-Makdas organization, which over the past year, since it swore allegiance to al-Baghdadi, has been known as the Sinai Province of the Islamic State. This group, according to the evaluations of intelligence sources, was behind the explosion on Metrojet Flight 9268, and is today an integral part of the international activities of ISIS.

In this piece, we tried to draw a profile of the organization which was born from a hodge-podge of fragments of other groups and outcasts of Gaza militias and is today perceived as strategic threat to a-Sisi’s rule in Egypt.,7340,L-4744257,00.html
