Egyptian army has been continuing its largest military operations against armed group in Sinai since August, says local sources.
Local sources told Anadolu Agency correspondent on Thursday that a military convoy was heading to El-Arish and Seikh Zuveyd cities in the north of Sinai Peninsula.
It is believed that suspects of the August 5 attack on a border crossing that left 16 Egyptian soldiers dead and 7 others wounded, are staying in these cities, sources stated.
The military operation is the biggest one in the region since Egypt's war with Israel in 1973.
