Raid by security forces in North Sinai leaves six alleged militants dead and ten arrested, according to sources

Six militants were killed and ten arrested in North Sinai late Sunday, state news agency MENA reported.

Security sources said the raid targeted areas of South Rafah.

Egyptian security forces have stepped up their attacks against militants, especially in the Sinai Peninsula, after attacks targeting police and soldiers escalated following the ouster of Islamist president Mohamed Morsi in July 2013.

Over 500 security forces have been reported killed since last year.

Militant attacks have also reached the capital Cairo.

Security forces killed tens of suspected militants in the past several months.
