Hours after airstrikes against Islamic radicals in Libya, army units to support police forces in securing public properties, main roads and highways, Egyptian armed forces began to deploy units in governorates nationwide on Monday to secure public properties, main roads and highways, reported an army spokesperson Monday evening.
The deployment follows the National Defence Council's decision on Sunday to support police forces around the country.
The decision comes hours after Egypt launched airstrikes against Islamic State militants in Libya.
Egypt said the strikes are a retaliation for the beheading of 21 Egyptian Copts by the Islamic radicals in Libya.

How do we know for certain that they are actually bombing ISIS positions?
Are we supposed to constantly believe "official" sources and the MSM?

Now they are bombing.
To bomb, they must have a target (ostensibly). So the Egyptian MoD had to acquire those targets. That did not happen in a day. They had the intel already.
Why wait until now? How many atrocities is the the threshold?
