In a discussion over Facebook, Saleh El-Masry, security chief of North Sinai, says he ‎doesn’t believe that residents of the ‎peninsula were behind the pipeline bombing on ‎Wednesday.‎

Unknown saboteurs blew up the pipeline that runs through North Sinai at the crack of ‎dawn, an incident that is widely ‎expected to escalate tensions between Egypt and Israel.‎

Some people are convinced the culprits are locals who executed the attack because ‎they are at odds with the ‎government. ‎

On a Facebook page called “Soot Sinai,” or the voice of Sinai, El-Masry said: ‎“No way are the sons of ‎Sinai responsible ‎for the incident. Investigations are still underway to reveal the real ‎identity of ‎the perpetrators.”‎‎

He also called on the youth of Sinai to fight for the resurrection of their land like their parents ‎fought to liberate it. ‎

Replying to people who voiced fear over security measures, El-Masry called on everyone ‎to cooperate with the police ‎these days. ‎

“Police patrols will secure the streets and any wrongdoing will be dealt with,” he ‎stated.‎
