The Egyptian army has killed 14 terrorists during armed clashes and military operations in North Sinai Governorate.
The Egyptian army confirmed in a statement that seven terrorists were killed in clashes with law enforcement forces when they attempted to attack a security outpost in North Sinai.
The terrorists’ automatic rifles, hand grenades and wireless communication devices were seized, according to the statement.
Another seven terrorists were killed in an air raid in North Sinai on the same day, according to the statement.
The anti-terror operations came after 11 Egyptian troops were killed and five others wounded on May 7 in clashes with terrorists in western Sinai.
Through a decade of fighting terrorism in the northern part of the Sinai Peninsula, Egypt has managed to minimize terrorist activities in the peninsula.
The terrorists in Sinai are mostly loyal to the Islamic State group.
