CAIRO: The government claimed it killed six alleged militants Friday and arrested 25 in the cities of Rafah and Sheikh Zuwayed in the restive North Sinai governorate, Youm7 reported.

Counterterrorism security troops chased an armed terrorist group south of Sheikh Zuwayed after a gunfire exchange between the two sides, leading to four militants being killed while others fled, a security source in the North Sinai Security directorate was quoted by the paper as saying.

Also, in Rafah two alleged militants of the Ansar Bayt al-Maqdis (ABM) group were killed in a failed ambush they set up to target local residents along the Arish-Rafah International Road, the source, who refused to be named, added.
