Israeli public radio reported on August 7 that Israel has returned to Egypt the bodies of six gunmen killed by Israeli security forces.

The gunman had crossed into Israel on August 5 in a stolen armored vehicle after killing 16 Egyptian border guards in the Sinai.

Meanwhile, Egypt has branded the Islamist militants as "infidels" and has promised a crackdown in the Sinai region.

Israel has urged Egypt to tighten control over the area.

Israeli Defense Minister Ehud Barak said on August 6 that the attack should serve as a "wake-up call" to Cairo.

Egypt's new Islamist president, Muhammad Morsi, has vowed to retake "full control" of the Sinai.

He said the militants would "pay dearly" for the attack.

Gaza's deputy prime minister, Mohammed Awad, said militants from the Hamas-ruled territory were not involved.

US is supporting the peaceful Wahhabi "infidels" who tried to kill Christians in Zionist-occupied Palestine. US is biggest sponsor of terrorism.

this is just the begining. Israel and its proxy - US government will get what they asked for sponsoring peaceful Wahhabi Sunni activists. Peaceful Sunni freedom fighters will liberate Middle East from Israel and US occupiers, and then they will take the fight to New York to liberate Amerika from infidels. US government will surely help them as Hillary and John McCain are big fans of Sunni freedom fighters. Weren't that Clintons who brought in 9/11 freedom bombers from Saudi Arabia to liberate World Trade Center from infidels?
