Sinai: an essential pivot for the control of the southern Mediterranean.- Jesús Gil Fuensanta y Alejandro Lorca

Sinai is apparently one of many among the geographical areas bordering the southern Mediterranean. But the increase in attacks and the Daesh presence in northern Sinai since the fall of 2014 have made this peninsula one of the "hearts" of Egypt. On the other hand, parallel geostrategic events took place in recent months (v.gr. the case of the administrative transfer of the islands of Tiran and Sanafir by Egypt to Saudi Arabia, or the increase in the "official" presence of the tribes in the conflict of the Sinai ) and help to demonstrate the importance of the events that happen around that peninsula, which affects not only neighboring countries but it has key implications either to future and likely conflicts in the Middle East and to the same fratricidal war that is occurring within the Islam.
