New ISIS threat prompts U.S. to send 75 more troops to Egypt’s Sinai

“The Pentagon announced Thursday that it will send 75 more troops to Egypt’s Sinai Peninsula amid a rising threat from insurgents linked to the so-called Islamic State. The additional troops will boost force protection for the roughly 650 service members deployed there now as part of the Multinational Force of Observers, a little-known peacekeeping force that helps maintain a 1979 treaty between Egypt and Israel.”
