At least 47 militants and five soldiers, including an officer, were killed in an exchange of fire in Egypt’s restive Sinai Peninsula, the Egyptian army said Thursday.

In a statement carried on state television, the army said it had also managed to confiscate “several rifles and improvised explosive devices” in northern and central Sinai.

It went on to assert that at least 47 militants — along with five soldiers, including an officer — had been killed in “clashes”.

The statement did not provide any further details, including when the deadly exchange occurred.
