Egypt’s Security Forces Kill 11 Suspected Militants in Raid

CAIRO – Egyptian security forces killed 11 suspected militants near the Suez Canal city of Ismailia as part of a crackdown following last week’s deadly terror attack on a mosque in the Sinai Peninsula, the Interior Ministry said on Tuesday.

The raid was conducted after agents received information about a hideout on a farm in the area of Galbana, Ismailia, allegedly used by radicals for training and staging hostile operations, according to the ministry’s statement.

The ministry said that, after security forces surrounded the farm, the militants began shooting and police returned fire, killing 11 alleged militants.

Earlier on Tuesday, three suspected terrorists were killed during another operation carried out by the Egyptian army in North Sinai.

These security operations come in the wake of Friday’s deadly massacre that left 305 people dead, including 27 children, and wounded another 128 people at al-Rawdah mosque in Bir al-Abd, 40 kilometers (25 miles) west of the North Sinai capital of al-Arish.

No terror group has so far claimed responsibility for the attack.

Hours after the killings, President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi vowed to avenge the deaths, restore stability in the region and “respond to the act with brutal force.”
