Egypt: Shelling by militants kills four soldiers in Sinai

At least four Egyptian soldiers have been killed in a shelling attack carried out by militants in Egypt’s Sinai Peninsula.

Egyptian sources said the incident took place on Tuesday in the peninsula’s northern region.

Meanwhile, the Egyptian army has killed more than 50 militants linked to the Takfiri Daesh terrorist group in the country’s Sinai Peninsula.

Egypt’s Masrawy news portal, citing an army source, said on Monday the militants were killed in an operation against the Vilayat Sinai (Sinai Province) group…

The Sinai region is under a state of emergency since October 2014, following a deadly terrorist attack that claimed the lives of 33 soldiers.
