Military Spokesman Mohamed Samir has said the security forces identified the suspects who were involved in the killing of 22 Egyptian military personnel on the Egyptian-Libyan border on Saturday night.

“Some 20 heavily-armed persons attacked the security point,” he said.

“After multiple skirmishes with the security forces, they fired several RPG shells at the security point,” he added.

“As the clashes erupted, backup forces were dispatched to the scene, and forced the assailants to flee into the nearby mountains,” he pointed out.

He added that the investigations were underway to determine the circumstances of the attack.
