19 militants killed in North Sinai by Egyptian Army

EgyptAtleast 19 militants were killed and six terrorist suspects arrested by the security forces of the Egyptian army in the North Sinai province. The forces also destroyed  23 hideouts, 27 vehicles, two digging loaders and two motorbikes, a local website reported. On Friday, similar security operations killed 60 militants and wounded 40 others in Sheikh Zuweid and Rafah, according to a statement by the military spokesman.  Increasing terror attacks have killed hundreds of policemen and soldiers nationwide since the military overthrew the former Islamist president Mohamed Morsi in July 2013. Last week, a mortar attack on a security checkpoint in North Sinai’s Arish city killed 15 policemen. Most of the anti-government attacks were claimed by a Sinai-based militant group calling itself “Sinai State” which vows its loyalty to the Islamic State group in Iraq and Syria.
