CAIRO – 22 August 2022: The Municipal Council of Sheikh Zowayed District at North Sinai announced Monday that a new batch of compensations is being disbursed to 51 citizens, whose houses were damaged because of the war on terror.


The council added that there are still others who are eligible, and whose compensations would be delivered soon. It is noted that dozens of Sheikh Zowayed dwellers amounting to over 100 have been compensated since the beginning of 2022 for the damages they have endured since 2013.


A total of 10 terrorists classified as “highly dangerous” were killed in North Sinai by the Egyptian Armed Forces in May, as indicated by an official statement.


A “hotspot” was discovered in the area where the militants were hiding; the troops besieged it and targeted 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.


Earlier in the same month, 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 previous 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 May 11. Seven of the attackers were also killed and a collection of machine guns, walkie talkies, hand grenades, and ammunition were seized.
