The Egyptian Air Force destroyed 15 vehicles laden with arms, ammunition and explosives before breaching the western borders of Egypt, the state-run MENA news agency reported.

In a statement released on Sunday, the army said the operation comes as part of the army efforts to secure borders from all strategic fronts.

It added that the operation was launched based on intelligence reports that criminal elements are planning to sneak into the western borders of Egypt through a set of four-wheel drive vehicles.

The army forces are still hunting down other criminal elements on the deserts of the western region.

Meanwhile, the Third Field Army in cooperation with the Air Force and other security forces destroyed a terrorist hideout in central Sinai and killed six takfiri elements after hitting their vehicle that was laden with explosives.
