Cairo, March 26 (IANS) Egypt's army raids on Friday killed 60 Islamist terrorists in troubled North Sinai's Rafah and Sheikh Zuweid cities, army spokesman said.

Anti-terror forces, backed by military warplanes, attacked terrorists hideouts in the two cities, killing 60 terrorists and injuring 40 others, the spokesman said in a statement, Xinhua reported.

Last week, a mortar attack on a security checkpoint in North Sinai's El-Arish city killed 15 policemen.

The North Sinai-based militant group Ansar Bayt Al-Maqdis (ABM), which is affiliated with the Islamic State group, claimed responsibility for the attack.
