Egypt Details Ansar Offensive
CAIRO [MENL] -- Egypt has reported an offensive by Ansar Beit Maqdis near
the frontier with Libya and Sudan.
Security sources said Ansar moved operations from the Sinai Peninsula to
Egypt's Western Desert in mid-2014. They said the move was meant to avoid
intensified operations by the Egyptian military in Sinai as well as increase
arms smuggling from neighboring countries.
