CAIRO:  The military conducted several operations in the Sinai Saturday that killed about eight jihadists, and arrested 13 others, according to military spokesperson Mohamed Samir in a statement issued Sunday.

He added that the arrested had participated in previous operations in North Sinai against the military and police forces, including attacking checkpoints and bombing other locations and cars.

Samir said the operations conducted by the military Saturday come as part of their plan to destroy terrorism bases in the Sinai, especially after a coordinated militant attack on Oct. 24 that killed over 30 soldiers.

Sinai has been facing unrest since the events of June 30 and the security dispersal of the Rabaa al-Adaweya and Nahda Square sit-ins.
