The Egyptian army said on Monday that it killed six takfiri terrorists in the past week in North Sinai and arrested thirty-one others.
The army spokesperson said this came amid the “Martyr’s Right” operation, launched in 2015 to lead counterattacks on militants in Sinai.
The army further said it destroyed 65 terrorist dens, car bombs, and motorcycles, and it seized laptops and other communication devices, explosive materials, and drugs including 22 kg of heroin.
These operations come in light of the continued unrest in the governorate. In mid-September, the army posted photos on Facebook of terrorists it said it had killed in operations, two days after a militant attack killed 18 policemen.
