EGYPTIAN ARMY LAUNCHES AIRSTRIKE KILLING A NUMBER OF “TERRORISTS”

The Egyptian Armed Forces launched on Saturday a successful airstrike on gunmen’s hideouts, killing a number of “terrorist elements” in a counter attack after the “terrorist attack on an army checkpoint last Friday in North Sinai.”

A statement by the high command of the Egyptian Armed Forces noted that this airstrike that lasted three hours resulted in demolishing “terrorists’ positions along with the weaponry depot for these elements and a number of vehicles.”

The statement added that the government forces will continue the war against anyone who targets the country’s security, “whatever the difficulties and sacrifices may be.”

Earlier on Friday, a “terrorist attack” on an Egyptian army checkpoint in North Sinai resulted in killing 15 militants and 12 military personnel.
