Egyptian army spokesman Tamer El-Refaie said in a statement on Thursday that law enforcement forces of the Second Field Army have targeted terrorist hideouts in North Sinai during the recent days, killing 3 high-risk terrorists and arresting 74 others suspected of supporting terrorist elements.

The statement said that the raids came as part of wider Armed Forces efforts to pursue terrorists and criminal elements.

The army spokesman said that five 4x4 vehicles, four IEDs, and two fuel storage facilities were destroyed in the raids.

The Armed Forces will refer the arrested elements to the appropriate legal authorities, said the statement.
