Egypt's army kills 450 ISIS terrorists since 'Sinai 2018': Military Spox

Egypt’s Army Spokesman Tamer al-Rifai said the large-scale operation, dubbed "Sinai 2018," has eliminated 450 terrorists and militias since the beginning of the eight-month offensive against ISIS in Sinai.
In a Tuesday statement, Rifai said the operation has also resulted in the dismantling of some 1,200 explosive devices and the destruction of about 1,900 vehicles and motorcycles.
Sinai 2018 was launched in February to neutralize and encounter terrorists and ISIS militias in Sinai, following an attack on a mosque in late 2017 that killed more than 300 people.
Rifai stressed the government had spent around $1.38bn to compensate residents forced to relocate from northern Sinai.
