Army Kills 9 Suspected Extremists in Operations in Egypt’s Sinai

CAIRO – A total of nine suspected extremists were killed and another was arrested in operations staged by the Egyptian army in the Sinai Peninsula, military spokesmen said Sunday.

Three suspected extremists were killed in an operation conducted with air support, while another extremist was arrested, Egyptian armed forces spokesman Tamer al-Refai said.

Troops destroyed a vehicle and five arms depots holding explosives and ammunition, the military spokesman said.

In another operation, the army killed six extremists and destroyed a vehicle carrying explosives in a mountainous area in the central Sinai Peninsula.

On Saturday, four suspected extremists were killed in a shootout with police in the Jelbanah desert area of Qantara Sharq, a city in the northeastern province of Ismailiya.

The suspects opened fire on officers searching an area near the Suez Canal and police returned fire, killing four extremists.

The attacks came after five police officers were shot dead by a group of unidentified gunmen on Friday in a town located about 30 kilometers (19 miles) south of Cairo.

The army and police are fighting armed radical groups in the Sinai Peninsula, including the offshoot of the Islamic State terror organization in the area.

The attacks have intensified since the military overthrew Islamist President Mohamed Morsi in July 2013.
