14 Egyptian Security Forces Killed as Militants Attack Military Checkpoint in Sinai

14 Egyptian Security Forces Killed as Militants Attack Military Checkpoint in Sinai

Alwaght- Militants attacked Saturday a military checkpoint in Egypt's restive Sinai Peninsula and killed at least eight Soldiers and wounding 15 more, the army said

Fourteen militants were also killed when the checkpoint came under attack at around dawn, an army statement said, adding that four of them detonated their explosive belts, Middle East Eye reported.

The attack was the largest against Egyptian security forces since President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi won a second term in office last month, promising to work for stability and security in Egypt.

It also came just hours after the country extended a state of emergency imposed a year ago.

Egypt has been fighting an insurgency in the northern part of the Sinai Peninsula since Sisi ousted Mohamed Morsi of the Muslim Brotherhood in 2013, after popular protests against Morsi's rule.

Sisi in November ordered the military to defeat militants in north Sinai within three months, after an attack on a mosque that killed more than 300 people, the deadliest such incident in the Arab world’s most populous country.

The military launched what it said was a major operation against the militants in February, a month before Sisi was re-elected in a vote featuring just one other candidate, a strong supporter of the president.

More than 100 militants and at least 22 soldiers have been killed in an ongoing operation launched on 9 February, according to army figures.
