Islamic State-linked militants struck Egyptian army outposts in the Sinai Peninsula on Wednesday in a coordinated wave of suicide bombings and battles that underlined the government’s failure to stem an insurgency despite a two-year crackdown. Security officials said dozens of troops were killed, along with nearly 100 attackers.

After the attack, which took place just across the border from Israel, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said, “We send our condolences to the government and people of Egypt, and to the families of the Egyptians that were slain by this vicious terrorism.”

Later on Wednesday, Netanyahu said, “We see ISIS [Islamic State] at the gates — across the border in the Golan, across the border in Egypt. … We must stand up to all the forces of militant Islam, those led by Iran, those led by ISIS. We should not strengthen one or the other. We should weaken both of them.”
