At least three Egyptian conscripts were killed and four others injured during raids in Central Sinai, announced the Egyptian Military on Friday.

According to the military spokesperson, the raids on multiple terrorist safe houses in the area also resulted in the deaths of three militants. Three other militants were arrested during the raids, said the military spokesperson on Facebook.

Along with the arrests, the Egyptian miltiary was able to locate and either confiscate or destroy several weapon depots that consisted of explosives and various weaponry.

Earlier this month, 14 terrorists were killed in similar raids in Central Sinai.

Since July 2013, Egypt’s military, in cooperation with local tribes, has waged a war against militancy in North Sinai, killing hundreds of suspected terrorists. An estimated 2100 people were killed in North Sinai in 2015, including roughly 1800 described by the military as “terrorists,” 150 civilians, 40 police officers and conscripts, and 140 military personnel.
