Egyptian state television is reporting renewed clashes between security forces and suspected Islamist militants in Egypt's Sinai Peninsula.

The state-owned Nile News television reported clashes outside a police station in the north Sinai town of Al-Arish.

The clashes come a day after the military said an air strike killed 20 militants in a neighboring village.

The air strike -- the first in the peninsula for decades -- was launched after gunmen attacked a border-guard outpost near the border with Israel on August 5 and killed 16 soldiers.

Egyptian President Muhammad Morsi fired the country's intelligence chief and the North Sinai provincial governor following that attack.

The rump republic of Egypt is a NATO minion whose days on this earth are numbered, just like Saakashvili's pitiful Georgia.

excellent development. Egypt is turning into another Afghanistan which means the end of US and Israeli occupation. Soon the NATO minions will start dying in Egypt as they do in Afghanistan, all thanks to the sleepless efforts of the brightest members of US government - Hillary Clinton, John McCain, and others. Hillary is so bright she can even outsmart Sarah Palin
