Egyptian Armed Forces have killed dozens of militants in Sinai after a car bomb attack on the peninsula, the country’s army said on its official Facebook page.

CAIRO (Sputnik) – An Egyptian woman and a child were killed in a car bomb attack in the North Sinai Governorate on Friday. The attack came amid a security operation in the region, which targets ISIL affiliates.

There have reportedly been some casualties among Egypt’s security forces.

ISIL Claims Responsibility for Abduction of Hamas Militants in Sinai
Egypt has recently seen an upsurge in attacks from the "Sinai Province" ("Wilayat Sinai") militant group, known as Ansar Bait al-Maqdis before its members took an oath of allegiance to the radical Sunni ISIL group in the fall of 2014.

Ansar Bait al-Maqdis emerged after the 2011 Egyptian revolution, which forced former President Hosni Mubarak out of power after an over 30-year rule. The militants aim to topple Egypt’s current government.

In August, Egyptian President Abdel Fattah Sisi signed a tougher and controversial anti-terrorism bill into law to combat the recent spike in attacks on the Sinai Peninsula.
