    At least 100 militants were killed in airstrikes carried out by the Egyptian government against jihadist targets in North Sinai.

    The airstrikes targeted the hideouts of the armed extremists involved in Friday’s attacks, and all areas that harbour the terrorist elements along with the weapons and ammunition depots were destroyed in the airstrikes, which lasted for three hours and is still ongoing.

    according to sources At least 40 militants were wounded in the air raids and  the airstrikes have bombed three suspected jihadist bases in Rafah, Sheikh Zuweid and Al-Arish cities in Egypt.

    The airstrikes were a retaliation to the killing of 12 army personnel on October 14 at a checkpoint.

    North Sinai province has been a hub for anti-security attacks that killed hundreds since the army-led ouster of Islamist president Mohamed Morsi in 2013.

    A Sinai-based militant group loyal to the Islamic State (IS) claimed responsibility for most of attacks, including the October 14 assault.
