20 killed in North Sinai security raids

12 injured, 78 arrested, says official

Security forces killed 20 in raids in the North Sinai cities of Al-Arish, Rafah, Sheikh Zuweid, and arrested 78 suspects of terrorism, according to a statement Thursday.

The forces were responding to gunfire from “terrorist elements”, injuring 12 people in the raid, the statement said.

Military and police forces also defused 51 bombs, seized four-wheel drive vehicles, weapons and ammunition stores, and destroyed 20 underground tunnels.

Meanwhile, in South Sinai, operation “Egypt 2” was conducted near Nuweiba port. Military forces participated on Wednesday in an Egyptian-Jordanian joint rescue exercise. The mission rescued a sinking ferry after rescue signals were received, in coordination with the Red Sea Ports Authority, the naval forces in South Sinai and the Transport Ministry.

An Egyptian aircraft determined the ferry’s location and the Jordanian navy sent boats to rescue survivors, who were brought offshore and medically assisted.

  1. We appreciate your effort in fighting the Mofsideen fi El-Ard. You kill to save lives. It is troubled area for Egypt since king Tohotmos, Tahya Mosr.

  2. FYI, king Tohotmos and his engineers invented the Chariot with metal tubes as ball bearing to fight those savages. It was scary war machine for its sound and speed. You may see it at the Ancient Museum in Cairo. Watch the axis metal cylinder. Tahya Misr

  3. King Tohotmos marked the POW by cutting one ear lobe. He let them go to save on feeding and take care of those savages.
