Yesterday, an ISIS suicide bomber driving a VBIED attacked a joint checkpoint of the Egyptian Army and tribal forces in the Joura area south of Sheikh Zuwaid in northern Sinai. ISIS claimed that the attack killed 16 fighters of the Egyptian Army and tribal forces.
ISIS militants also attacked the same checkpoint after the VBIED blast, where they managed to destroy a M-60 battle tank of the Egyptian Army with IED, killing two soldiers and injuring two others.

Furthermore, the Egyptian Army confiscated a large number of drugs. ISIS finances its operations in Sinai from the drug and arms trade between Gaza, Egypt and Libya.
