The Egyptian police on Tuesday killed at least 10 terrorists in a security raid in Arish city of restive North Sinai province northeast of the capital Cairo, official news agency MENA reported.

After receiving a tip-off, the national security sector struck hideout of some terrorist elements in a deserted farmland in El-Obour area in Arish. They were planning to carry out terrorist operations.

Three machine-guns, two rifles, two bombs and ammunition were seized in their possession, the report added.

Egypt has been battling militants for years, but the Sinai-based terrorist operations gained strength after the 2013 military ouster of Egyptian former Islamist President Mohammed Morsi in response to massive protests against his one-year rule.

On Monday, the armed forces announced in a statement the death of 52 militants in North Sinai.

The raids are part of the "Comprehensive Operation Sinai 2018," which has started in February. More than 390 militants and over 30 soldiers were killed so far in the anti-terror campaign.
