The Egyptian military killed 32 takfiris and arrested dozens of suspects in coordination with police forces, the army spokesperson said in a statement on Thursday.
This came during raids that took place throughout the past few days.
The number of takfiris included twelve killed by the army and another 20 killed by Egyptian police.
This came as part of Operation Sinai 2018, which was launched in February involving the army, navy, air force, and police to fight terrorism in Sinai.
The main aim of Operation Sinai 2018 is to target and destroy “terrorist and criminal elements and organisations” in northern and central Sinai, parts of the Nile Delta and the country’s Western Desert.
