Egypt faces an Islamic State insurgency in the remote North Sinai region that has killed hundreds of soldiers and policemen in recent years and has expanded to include attacks on civilians.

The statement stressed the Armed Forces are continuing to root out terrorism which is in turn making militants carry out desperate attempts at retaliation.

The incident comes amid Egypt's ongoing Operation Sinai 2018, launched "to implement the plan of comprehensive confrontation of terrorist and criminal elements and organisations in North and Central Sinai, and in other areas in the Nile Delta and desert areas west of the Nile Valley", according to the armed forces.
