The Egyptian media report says that after the attack on the mosque a group of militants numbering about 30 people tried to escape. For their destruction, Apache helicopters and drones were raised into the air. As a result of air strikes, this gang was eliminated in a desert area west of the city of El Arish - the administrative center of the province of North Sinai.
More 15 terrorists were eliminated by police special forces units in the area of the Ar-Raud mosque, against which the parishioners committed an act of terrorism.
Meanwhile, in the Arabic-language media there was information that the group "Wilayat Sinai" (*) has recently significantly expanded its ranks by militants who came from Syrian Raqqa. These are several groups of terrorists who were given the so-called “green corridors” before the “liberation” of Raqqa by the American coalition.
