Army Spokesman Confirms: Egyptian Army has Killed 60 Terrorists in Sinai

Egypt’s army raids on Friday killed 60 Islamist terrorists in troubled North Sinai’s Rafah and Sheikh Zuweid cities, army spokesman said.

Egyptian forces have always been on alert to face terrorists.

The Anti-terror forces, backed by military warplanes, attacked terrorists hideouts in the two cities, killing 60 terrorists and injuring 40 others, the army spokesman said in a statement.

Last week, a mortar attack on a security checkpoint in North Sinai’s El-Arish city killed 15 policemen.

The North Sinai-based militant group Ansar Bayt Al-Maqdis (ABM), which is affiliated with the Islamic State group, claimed responsibility for the attack.

Egypt has been facing anti-government attacks, mostly in the Sinai Peninsula, which killed hundreds of police and army personnel since 2013.

Some of the terrorists that have been claiming lives of Egyptians.

Most of the attacks have been claimed by the ABM, which has changed its name to "Sinai State."

The Egyptian military’s continuous massive operations on the peninsula have killed hundreds of militants as part of the country’s "war against terrorism."
