Earlier this week, the Egyptian military announced it had carried out a major security operation in the Sinai against Islamist militants involved in an ambush that left 16 Egyptian soldiers dead. The military said warplanes and artillery were brought to bear against the militants, and there were reports of up to twenty people dead. But reporters on the ground in north Sinai say they have seen no signs of the government offensive like damage or funerals.
