Egypt’s Military Says at least 19 Suspected Terrorists Killed in Sinai

CAIRO – At least 19 suspected terrorists were killed amid airstrikes launched by the Egyptian military, targeting radical positions in the northern half of the Sinai Peninsula, according to the army on Thursday.

Military spokesperson Tamer El-Refai said in a statement among those killed was a senior commander of Wilayat Sinai, a group that swore allegiance to the Islamic State terror organization in 2014, and another five alleged terrorists considered to be “very dangerous.”

The bombings also destroyed four vehicles, the statement added.

The Egyptian armed forces, which did not report the date of the attack, released a video showing images of explosions caused by the bombing of various buildings and vehicles.

On April 10, Egypt declared a state of emergency across the country following two separate Palm Sunday attacks at Coptic Christian churches in the cities of Tanta and Alexandria, resulting in the death of at least 43 people and the wounding of 100 others.
