John Kirby, the spokesperson of the US State Department, condemned Islamist militant attacks on a number of Egypt’s armed forces checkpoints in Northern Sinai’s Sheikh Zuweid and Rafah on Wednesday.

“The United States strongly condemns today’s terrorist attacks in Egypt’s North Sinai Governorate, in which dozens of Egyptian soldiers were killed and others wounded. We express our sincere condolences to the victims, their families, and the government and the people of Egypt," Kirby said in a press briefing.

He added that perpetrators of “these cowardly crimes” must be brought to justice, asserting the readiness of Washington to remain “steadfast in its support of the Egyptian Government’s efforts to combat terrorism in Egypt."
