Suicide bombers and gunman armed with grenades attacked around dawn.

Six of the militants were killed by aerial bombardment on their hideouts while 12 died in a shootout with police forces, the military said in a statement.

A group of 14 terrorist elements, four of which were carrying automatic and medium-caliber rifles attempted to break into an armed forces camp.

Egypt extended its nationwide state of emergency for three months as of April 14, according to the official gazette. Morsi, a member of the Muslim Brotherhood, saw his presidency beset by popular protests.

The emergency law gives police expanded powers to carry out arrests, surveillance and seizures.


"The armed forces were able today to foil a large terrorist operation", the military said. It also increases their authority to limit freedom of movement.

Under Egypt's constitution, the three-month state of emergency can only be renewed once, but the president can subsequently reinstate it. Among these attacks was the terrorist attack that hit Al-Rawdah Mosque and left more than 302 Friday prayers congregates dead in late November 2017. It was the deadliest such attack in Egypt in years. It was extended in July and again in October then January.

It would take place in areas including around the town of Rafah bordering the Palestinian Gaza Strip, and around El-Arish, the capital of North Sinai, according to the gazette.

Egypt's military said on Saturday that 27 jihadists were killed over the last few days in a sweeping operation in the Sinai to quash extremists based in the peninsula.
