Law Enforcement Forces of the Second Field Army managed to kill four dangerous Takfiri elements in North Sinai within the past few days. In addition، a number of terrorist hideouts containing explosive materials were discovered، military spokesperson Tamer Al Refaei said. Noteworthy، Egyptian army has struggled to crush militant violence based in Sinai، which has killed hundreds of police and troops and at times expanded to mainland cities including Cairo. Egyptian military and security forces have been battling a dangerous insurgency in the north of the peninsula since the ouster of former President Mohamed Morsi in June 2013. The terrorist militants have launched several major attacks، most recently targeting Cairo and other cities with the loss of dozens of lives.
