4 Terrorists killed, 7 Injured in Egyptian Army Raid in the Sinai

JewishPress Logo

At least four terrorists were killed and seven others injured on Saturday in an air strike of the Egyptian army in north Sinai, on Israel’s border, a local security source told Xinhua.

“The air strike targeted a house, a hut and a car in the village of al-Toma near Sheikh Zewaid city in North Sinai along with more that 10 rockets, while Jihadists replied with heavy artillery but in vain,” the source said.

Military spokesman Colonel Ahmed Mohamed Ali said Saturday that the armed forces attacked a terrorist group planning to launch attacks against army, police and civilians in North Sinai.

Ali said in a statement on his social network page that the terrorist group included members who were involved in the killing of 16 Egyptian soldiers in Rafah city in August 2012 and others involved in kidnapping seven Egyptian soldiers in May.

On Friday, two Egyptian military helicopters struck a rocket base of Jihadist militants in Rafah city in north Sinai.
