'Sinai 2018' military operation
Egypt's military launched an attack targeting terrorist hotbeds in different parts of the Sinai Peninsula, parts of the Nile Delta and the Western Desert.

The military action, named 'Sinai 2018,' starts a "comprehensive counter-terrorist plan" in the country, Col. Tamer Rifai announced Friday.

"Law enforcement forces began this morning implementing the plan of comprehensive confrontation against the terrorist and criminal elements and organisations in the north and central Sinai and other areas in the Delta of Egypt and the desert back in the west of the Nile Valley," Rifai said in a televised statement.

"This comes in addition to training and other operations on all strategic directions in order to tighten control of the ports of the Egyptian state."
