Egypt Forces Kill Eight Militants at Camp in South
Local Editor

Egyptian security forces killed eight suspected extremist militants belonging to the Hasm Movement in what officials said was a training camp in a southern desert region, the Interior Ministry said Sunday.

Egypt Forces Kill Eight Militants at Camp in South

Five other militants were arrested in operations carried out in Giza and Sharqiya regions, it said.

Automatic rifles, ammunitions and supplies were recovered at the Fayoum camp southwest of the capital, the ministry said.

Hasm, a group that emerged last year and claimed several attacks on security forces, said Friday it had carried out a shooting last week in Fayoum, a province about 60 km south of Cairo, that killed one policeman and injured three others.

Egypt accuses Hasm of being a militant wing of the Muslim Brotherhood.

An extremist insurgency in the rugged Sinai Peninsula strengthened after the Egyptian military overthrew President Mohammad Morsi of the Muslim Brotherhood in mid-2013 following mass protests against his rule.

The militant group staging the insurgency pledged allegiance to Daesh [the Arabic acronym for the Takfiri terrorist ‘ISIS/ISIL' group] in 2014. It is blamed for the killing of hundreds of soldiers and policemen, and has started to target other areas, including Egypt's Christian Copts.
