CAIRO – 15 November 2017: Law enforcement forces of the Third Field Army managed to detect and destroy five key hideouts of terrorists in Northern Sinai and two of their four-wheel vehicles, Tamer al-Refae, the military spokesperson announced on Wednesday.

The statement also added that a Takfiri-linked pickup truck loaded with some spare parts of a car was impounded.

This came within the Armed Forces’ ongoing counter-terrorism operations in North Sinai, aiming to eliminate terrorists and Takfiri elements, and to eradicate their breeding grounds and hotbeds.

North Sinai has been a staging ground for militants operating in Egypt for decades. It is also home to the Islamic State’s Egyptian branch, which has been primarily targeting Christians and security forces in the area.
