Egypt's armed forces on Friday launched airstrikes against alleged terror organisations in north and central Sinai, while three alleged members of a militant group were killed by security forces in the capital Cairo, the opening moves in a major new nationwide security operation, officials said. Col.

A total of 16 militants were killed, it said, and four militants were captured.

The growing military cooperation between Israel and Egypt has always been rumored and in June, Israel's Institute for National Security Studies (INSS) noted that if the frequent claims of anti-terror coordination were accurate it would show "the level of trust between the nations has reached the point where Israel is providing various military, technological and operational intelligence to Egypt and is operating attack UAVs (unmanned aerial vehicles) in Sinai with Cairo's approval".

On Friday, the army and naval forces began a military operation named "Full-Scale Operation in Sinai 2018" against terrorists in Sinai affiliated to the Islamic State (IS) terrorist group (previously known as Ansar Bayt al-Maqdis), Military spokesman Colonel Tamer al-Rifai announced.

El-Sissi, who has waged one of the most sweeping crackdowns on dissent in Egypt's modern history, says he is the only one who can restore Egypt's security.

Egypt denied this, and Israel declined to comment.

Currently, Spurs are fifth in the EPL points table with 49 points whereas Arsenal are sixth with 45 points. And the Spurs chief is confident they can now kick on and secure a top four finish this season.

Egypt's security forces have been increasingly targeted by extremists since the army in 2013 overthrew Mr El Sisi's predecessor, president Mohammed Morsi.

Violence has been concentrated in north Sinai, but has also spread to the mainland.

And last September Sissi met Netanyahu for the first time in public, the encounter coming ahead of the United Nations General Assembly in NY. No group has yet claimed responsibility for the mosque attack though.
