Egyptian designers make Sinai war on terror into video game

Two Egyptian developers have designed a new video game about the Egyptian army's battles against armed groups in the Sinai Peninsula.

CAIRO, Egypt - Egyptian programmers have developed a video game that simulates battles between the Egyptian army and terrorist groups in Sinai, Libya and elsewhere in the Middle East.

The game, “Militia,” features the ambush in North Sinai's al-Barth village that killed Egyptian Col. Ahmed al-Mansi on July 7, 2017. It also features real places as well as fallen soldiers and leaders who died during the attack.
