Egypt Kills 12 Militants in North Sinai Air Strike

Egypt's military air forces have targeted and killed 12 militants in North Sinai, according to a statement released by the military spokesperson.

Police forces also blocked an attempt by militants to target a police checkpoint with a bombed auto in Al-Arish city in North Sinai on Monday, according to the Ministry of Interior statement.

Ansar Bayt al-Maqdis, Egypt's most active militant group, swore allegiance to Islamic State in 2014 and adopted the name Sinai Province.

Police attempted to arrest the militants, the ministry said in a statement, but they shot at the force leading to a firefight.

Egypt's army and police have been fighting an insurgency in parts of North Sinai for the past few years.

Reporting on another operation, the military spokesman said that security forces units have arrested several "extremely dangerous" takfiri terrorists in Central Sinai.

Police officers, added the text, could totally reject the aggression.

Militants opened fire at security personnel at a checkpoint on the International Road, meanwhile deploying a vehicle loaded with explosives. The movement has appeared in early 2016. During October of the same year, militants driving a black private vehicle opened fire on army leader Adel Ragaai assassinating him in front of his residence in Al-Obour City.

North Sinai has been caught in a crossfire between Egypt's security forces and militants since the ouster of the former Islamist President Mohamed Morsi.

It is blamed for the killing of hundreds of soldiers and policemen in attacks since then.

President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi carried out air strikes on militants in Libya in response to a deadly attack on Coptic Christians last month that left at least 29 dead.
