15 militants killed in N. Sinai air strike: source
Security forces have reportedly killed 15 militants and injured another 9 in an army raid in North Sinai, security source told Youm7 on Wednesday.
 
The raid targeted “militants’ hideouts in precautionary strikes against terrorist elements, in Rafah and Arish towns,” he added.
 
Egypt has witnessed a significant rise in militancy since the military-backed ouster of Islamist President Mohamed Morsi in July 2013 following mass protests against his rule. According to the Interior Ministry, militant attacks have killed more than 500 security personnel since then.
