16 Egyptian soldiers were killed in the attack of a security checkpoint at the Egyptian border.
The militants tried to force their way through to Israel,
but were repelled by border guards.
Both Israel and Egypt blamed the attack on Islamist militants,
who’ve become increasingly active in recent months.
But Eric Draitser, a geopolitical analyst at Stopimperialism.org,
believes the attack in Sinai works to Israel’s benefit.
