Egyptian air forces carried out airstrikes in North Sinai overnight against hideouts used by terrorists involved in the Friday attack on a mosque in the governorate's Bir Al-Abd city, which left 305 worshippers dead and 128 injured, the Armed Forces spokesperson said in a statement on Sunday.

The airstrikes, which were carried out based on information received from Sinai residents, destroyed hideouts containing weapons, ammunition and explosive material. 

Law enforcement personnel, in coordination with the air force, are combing the area where the strikes were carried out.
