Egyptian Forces Kill Over 200 Militants in North Sinai

Earlier in July Wilayat Sinai carried out a number of attacks on Egyptian army’s checkpoints in Sinai, killing up to 20 servicemen.

MOSCOW (Sputnik) — Egyptian armed forces have killed over 200 militants in North Sinai in the past three days, a military source told Sputnik Saturday.

The Egyptian forces launched a military operation against the radicals and targeted the terrorists’ positions with airstrikes.

“The total number of militants killed after the attack on army checkpoints in North Sinai has reached 205 people in the past three days,” the source told Sputnik.

Wilayat Sinai, translated as the Sinai Province, is a part of the Egypt-based Ansar Bait al-Maqdis jihadist group, which pledged allegiance to the Islamic State in November 2014.
