The Egyptian armed forces said on Friday that their units in North Sinai had killed two dangerous “takfiri elements” during a raid.
According to the short statement, the raid took place after the military received intelligence about a terrorist cell located on a farm.
The statement added that an automatic rifle, a wireless device and ammunition were found with the terrorists.
On Thursday, ten Egyptian military personnel were “killed or wounded” when an improvised explosive device was detonated in North Sinai’s Beir Al-Abd, according to an official statement.
No group has claimed responsibility for the attack.
