Nine terrorists killed in Egypt

The group considers the army and police apostates who should be killed for the sake of creating an Islamic Caliphate.

The Islamic State claimed responsibility for the attack.

The incident occurred some 30 kilometers west of Arish in northern Sinai, the heart of long-running militancy now led by the Velayat Sinai terror outfit.

Monday's attack the deadliest against Egyptian security forces since July when ISIL killed 23 troops in Rafah.

The assailants, whose identities were not yet known, later opened fire at survivors and commandeered a police pickup truck.

According to the state news agency MENA, security forces entered a gun battle with militants in the vicinity of the blast site and managed to slay several of them.

The security forces targeted members of the IS affiliated group Sinai Province who were based in the Ard El Lewaa suburb where they lived as "ordinary citizens", according to the ministry statement. In recent years there has also been a wave of attacks, mainly targeting security forces, blamed on a splinter faction of Morsi's banned Muslim Brotherhood group.

Nine policemen, including four officers, were injured during the two raids, it said in a statement.

An Islamist insurgency in the rugged Sinai peninsula strengthened after the Egyptian military overthrew President Mohamed Mursi of the Muslim Brotherhood in mid-2013 following mass protests against his rule.
