The Egyptian air force destroyed a group of vehicles that crossed into Egypt from Libya loaded with smuggled weapons، the military said on Sunday.
It said on its Facebook page that 15 four-wheel-drive vehicles carrying weapons، ammunition، and other contraband had been destroyed in air raids over the past 24 hours.
A video released by the military showed jets and helicopter gunships attacking targets in the desert. The military did not say who was driving the vehicles or give details of any casualties.
The air force action came as security forces killed six militants they identified as dangerous terrorist elements in a shootout in the country's Ismailia on Saturday، according to the interior ministry.
