Egyptian police killed eight terrorists on Tuesday after a shootout broke out while security forces conducted a raid on a terrorist training camp in North Sinai’s El-Arish, the interior ministry said in a statement.

The raid was carried out based on intelligence obtained by the National Security agency, which indicated that the suspects were involved in several terrorist attacks in the governorate.

A number of weapons as well as improvised explosive devices (IEDs) were found at the site.

The suspects’ identities or affiliations have not yet been determined.

Most of the terrorist attacks that have taken place in North Sinai in recent years, which have mostly targeted security forces, have been claimed by the Daesh-affiliated North Sinai-based group Ansar Beit Al-Maqdis.
