update:February 10,2020
Feb.10, 2020 -- A Egypt's army announced on Sunday that it killed 10 terrorists as its forces thwarted a major terror attack on a military checkpoint in North Sinai province.
In a statement, spokesperson of the Egyptian armed forces Tamer al-Refai said members of the armed forces managed to foil a terrorist attack on a security post in North Sinai, adding that the assault caused the death and injury of seven troopers, including two officers.
A four-wheel drive vehicle used by the terrorists was destroyed, the spokesman said, noting that army forces started an operation in search of terrorists at the scene of the attack.
Egypt has been fighting against a wave of terrorism that killed hundreds of policemen, soldiers and civilians since the ouster of former President Mohamed Morsi in July 2013 and the massive crackdown on his currently outlawed Muslim Brotherhood group.
Most of the attacks were claimed by a Sinai-based terrorist group loyal to the Islamic State.
