Egypt Government Forces Kill 29 Islamic State Members In Sinai


Egypt’s Armed Forces said Tuesday it launched a “major military operation” against the Islamic State (IS) group in the Sinai Peninsula, killing 29 Jihadists and leaving two soldiers dead. There is no independent confirmation for the moment on the official toll.


In a statement, the army said it launched the operation to “eliminate terrorist elements” linked to IS.

The Sinai is presided by armed groups opposed to the government of retired general Abdel Fattah Al Sissi, who took power after a military coup that in 2013 toppled the Muslim Brotherhood administration
