The dozen or more attacks were the most sophisticated and challenging to the Egyptian state in Sinai, or anywhere else in the country for that matter, for decades.

President been Sisi's since coming to power two years ago, the situation in Sinai is getting to the point where it might be appropriate to describe it as a full-blown insurgency.

A North Sinai resident said that the attacks, which all occurred at the same time, were some of “the biggest in Sheikh Zuweid”. He added that the Sheikh Zuweid police station was surrounded by militants on Wednesday morning, he said the ambulances carrying the injured and the deaths are unable to move as they are trapped in the area of Sheikh Zuweid police station.
