CAIRO (QHA) -

Egyptian security forces shot dead 24 “Islamic State” terrorists in central Sinai, 70 km from the crash site of a Russian airliner.

According to Reuters, another 8 terrorists, who were hiding in a mountain cave, have been captured.

Reminder: the terrorist organization ISIL previously claimed responsibility for the Russian airline crash in Egypt saying it is their revenge for the Russian air strikes in Syria.

"Sinai Province”, Islamic State’s Egypt branch, is active in North Sinai where over two years it has since killed hundreds of soldiers and policemen.
