On August 5, Islamist militants launched an attack on Egyptian soldiers at a military checkpoint along the Sinai border, leaving 16 border guards dead.

In response, the Egyptian military  fired missiles on suspected Islamist militants in Egypt's northern Sinai Peninsula. Twenty people were reportedly killed in Touma village, and the Sheikh Zuwaid area was also hit. This is the first time Egypt has fired missiles in the Sinai since the war with Israel in 1973.
