The Egyptian army said Tuesday its forces killed three militants in Sinai and destroyed tunnels at Rafah on the Gaza border as part of a vast campaign against terrorists in the area.

More than 200 suspected terrorists and at least 35 soldiers have been killed since Egypt launched operation “Sinai 2018” to rid the peninsula of extremist militants in February, according to the military.

Operations carried out in recent days resulted in “the elimination of three takfiris”, the army said, referring to Sunni Muslim extremists.

Operations carried out in recent days resulted in “the elimination of three takfiris”, the army said, referring to Sunni Muslim extremists.

They also led to the “destruction of a number of tunnels in the city of Rafah in northern Sinai”, it said in a statement.

The Rafah border crossing is the only entrance to the Gaza Strip not controlled by Israel, and Egypt’s sole frontier with the Palestinian enclave has remained largely closed since 2013.

Gaza borders two countries-- Israel and Egypt. (The Sinai is the part of Egypt Gaza borders). And Gaza terrorists are constantly trying to infiltrate both countries and commit acts of terror. 

As a result Eggypt mainly blockades Gaza by keeping the border closed, and has destroyed smuggling tunnels. So the only source of food and supplies for Gaza comes from daily truckloads entering from Israel.
