CAIRO – 29 May 2022: A total of 10 terrorists classified as “highly dangerous” have been killed in North Sinai by Egyptian troops, according to a Sunday statement by the spokesperson of the Armed Forces.


A “hotspot” was discovered in the area where the militants were hiding; the troops besieged it and tackled the militants. Ammunition, grenades, explosive belts, TNT, and other weapons were ceased in the place.


One element was arrested alive while attempting to escape. He was armed with a machine gun.



On May 19, a suicide bomber who attempted to attack a security checkpoint in North Sinai was killed, according to a statement by the Ministry of Interior.


On May 15, the Egyptian Armed Forces announced targeting several terrorist hideouts and killing four takfiris in North Sinai over the past three days.


This came few days after a military officer and four soldiers were killed in a terrorist attack in North Sinai, the Armed Forces announced on 11 May. Seven of the attackers were also killed and a collection of machine guns, walkie talkies, hand grenades, and ammunition were seized.


The spokesperson of the armed forces said in a statement that the military would “avenge the martyrs in its ranks,” and that such “desperate attempts by the forces of evil and those who assist them would only increase our troops’ insistence on security and safety for the great people of Egypt.”


Earlier in May, the military announced foiling an attack by a group of takfiri elements on a water lift station east of the Suez Canal, noting that the confrontation left 11 military personnel killed.


The incident was widely condemned by many countries and international parties. Arab leaders have announced supporting Egypt in the face of the terrorist threats.
