      Egyptian Sources: Mossad Eliminated Jihadist in Sinai


      Egyptian officials claimed, Thursday, that the Mossad Israeli intelligence agency was behind the elimination of jihad activist Ibrahim Barikat, who was killed on Sunday in the Sinai Peninsula, according to the Palestinian Authority's Ma'an news agency. Three Bedouin reportedly took part in the operation.

      The sources claimed that the Bedouin gave Israel the Barikat's location, which led to the firing of a missile at the motorcyle he was riding. It was also reported that two of the Bedouin have crossed the Israeli border to escape jihad organizations which are seeking revenge.
