Shooting Down of Egyptian Chopper Corroborates Bennett's Warning

Five Egyptian soldiers were killed when a military helicopter crashed to the ground in the northern Sinai peninsula, near Gaza, on Saturday.

While the military said that the soldiers were killed in a helicopter “accident” as they pursued terrorists, the Al Qaeda-inspired Ansar Beit al Maqdis group said its fighters brought down the helicopter with a missile – and have posted a video corroborating the claim.
