Following on from the bombings of Coptic Churches in Egypt, there was an attack earlier this month on a checkpoint near St Catherine's Monastery. This monastery dates back to the time of Justinian and has a number of early Bible mss including part of codex Sinaiticus of the fourth century.
I am surprised this hasn't happened before because ISIS is active in northern Sinai and it would be a major event were they to gain access and wreak havoc at St Catherine's Monastery. Although the isolation of the monastery has contributed to its survival over 1400 years, it is in the forefront of digitising its manuscript collection.
The account of the attack can be read here.
