Egypt’s Chief of Military Intelligence Mohammed Farag El-Shahat said that the Egyptian army has killed nearly 500 militants in Sinai in military operations launched under the name “the martyr’s right’ since 2015.
Egypt’s security forces have been battling a decade-long militant Islamist insurgency, which intensified since the ouster of Islamist president Mohamed Morsi in July 2013, mainly in North Sinai ‘s Rafah, Arish, and Shiekh Zuwied

The Egyptian military commander affirmed that the banned Muslim Brotherhood organisation formed an alliance with the Islamic State militant group based predominantly in North Sinai, a move aimed at putting the Brotherhood back in power.
