CAIRO: The military is claiming it has killed 60 jihadists, and arrested 102 other extremists in raids in North Sinai over the past 12 days

Military spokesman Mohamed Samir said Saturday on the Egyptian military’s Facebook page that 123 houses, 24 vehicles and 118 unlicensed motorcycles belonging to militants had been destroyed in the latest operations, and that 247 militant bases had been burned.

Samir also wrote border guards of the 2nd Field Army demolished 17 smuggling tunnels under the Rafah border crossing between Egypt and Gaza. The statement did not mention when the tunnels were destroyed, but said two machine guns, eight mortars and six Molotov cocktails were seized inside the tunnels.
