Cairo (IINA) � Egyptian Air Force personnel killed at least 20 terrorists in northern Sinai in a security operation early on Thursday.
The operation targeted a gathering of armed terrorist elements near the village of Bila, west of Rafah, where law enforcement agents gunned down from the air a number of gunmen in a four-wheel-drive vehicle.
The Egyptian military launched new intensive security operations to eliminate terrorist strongholds, after the terror attack on the 103th Commandos Brigade last Friday, which killed a large number of soldiers and injured many others. A number of the armed terrorist elements were eliminated following the attack.
