The discovery of a Hizbollah terror network in Sinai could lead to a major Egyptian backlash against the Shiite movement and Iran.
Egyptian security forces this week revealed the arrest of dozens of suspects, allegedly belonging to cells recruited by Hizbollah in Egypt. At least 15 terrorists are still at large in Sinai and hundreds of Egyptian soldiers and policemen have been involved in the searches. Shots were twice fired at Egyptian security forces by Bedouin tribesmen believed to be working with the terrorists.
