Egypt's forces kill 12 suspected terrorists in Sinai

Egypt’s official news agency says security forces have killed at least 12 suspected terrorists in a shootout in northern Sinai Peninsula.

AhlulBayt News Agency (ABNA): Egypt’s official news agency says security forces have killed at least 12 suspected terrorists in a shootout in northern Sinai Peninsula.

Sunday’s report by MENA says the fighting erupted when forces raided a suspected militant hideout in the city of al-Arish. It says troops also dismantled two explosive devices and seized weapons during the raid.

MENA didn’t say when the raid took place or whether any members of the security forces were killed or wounded. Egypt heavily restricts media access to the northern part of the Sinai Peninsula.

In February, Egypt launched a massive operation against militants in Sinai and elsewhere in the country.
