Cairo : Eight terrorists were killed in confrontations with Egyptian army in North Sinai governorateThursday, Xinhua reported.






The army has launched a major campaign on 17 terrorist hotbeds in North Sinai, killing eight terrorists in confrontations and destroying a number of motorcycles used by the terrorists in attacks on security personnel in Sinai, a security source said.

Attacks against security forces in northern Sinai, an area that borders Israel and the Gaza Strip, have increased sharply since former president Mohamed Morsi was toppled July 3.

Egyptian army has launched a crackdown on militant groups based in Sinai, killing and arresting dozens of them.
