10 terrorists killed, 400 arrested in Sinai military operation

Egyptian security forces killed 10 terrorists and arrested 400 others, including foreigners, in an exchange of fire as part of an ongoing anti-terrorism campaign focused on Sinai that was launched last week, the army said in a statement on Tuesday.

It was the sixth communique released by the Egyptian Armed Forces since Operation Sinai 2018 was launched on Friday.

The announcement brings to 39 the number of militants the army said were killed over the past five days of its massive operation.

Operation Sinai 2018, involving land, naval and air forces as well as the police and border guards, targeted “terrorist and criminal elements and organizations” in northern and central Sinai, as well as parts of the Nile Delta and the Western Desert.
