Egyptian helicopters attack Jihadists in Sinai

EL-ARISH, Egypt (Ma’an) -- Two Egyptian Apache helicopters hovered Friday over olive groves south of el-Arish before they fired shells at bunkers of Jihadist gunmen who were preparing to attack army checkpoints, says military sources said.

According to the sources, army intelligence detected information about Jihadists hiding in olive groves and preparing to launch attacks against checkpoints. As a result, commanders sent two Apaches to the area and showered the militants with shells and machine-gun fire. Several were reported injured and dead.

Separately, a army checkpoint in Rafah was attacked by rocket-propelled grenades, according to a security source. The soldiers at the checkpoint returned fire heavily until the attackers fled the scene, they said.
