Egypt's army said jihadists wearing explosive belts tried to storm a military camp in the Sinai Peninsula on Saturday, April 14 in an assault that left 8 soldiers and 14 attackers dead.

Six of the jihadists were killed by aerial bombardment on their hideouts while 12 died in a shoot out with police forces, the military said in a statement.

Operation Sinai 2018 was launched earlier this year "to implement the plan of comprehensive confrontation of terrorist and criminal elements and organisations in North and Central Sinai, and in other areas in the Nile Delta and desert areas west of the Nile Valley", according to the army.

It did not disclose where and how the nine other militants were killed.

The statement said that all 14 the "terrorists" were killed during the attack.

Egypt's Sinai has witnessed many terrorists' attacks since the January 2011 revolution.

The attack comes as security forces continued a major offensive against militants blamed for a string of attacks across the country.

The jihadists have also killed scores of Christians in church bombings and shootings.

The attack was the largest against Egyptian security forces since President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi won a second term in office last month, promising to work for stability and security in Egypt.

Under Egypt's constitution, the three-month state of emergency can only be renewed once, but the president can subsequently reinstate it.

According to the resolution, the Egyptian armed forces and police shall take all necessary measures "to confront the threats and funding of terrorism and maintain security throughout the country".
