Egyptian army brigadier general shot dead in North Sinai
Ahram Online , Friday 4 Nov 2016

An Egyptian army brigadier general was shot dead Friday afternoon in
El-Arish in North Sinai, a military spokesman said.

In a statement Friday evening, the army spokesman said that three militants
opened fire on Hesham Mahmoud after Friday prayers in front of his house.

Last Saturday, the army said that over the weekend six militants and four
armed forces personnel were killed in North Sinai amid ongoing security
operations against militants in El-Arish, Rafah and Sheikh Zuwaid.

Egypt’s army launched a new security campaign two weeks ago against Islamist
militants in North Sinai, killing over 50 in response to a militant attack
three weeks ago that killed 12 soldiers and injured six others.

Last month, Adel Rajaei, an Egyptian military brigadier general who had
previously served in North Sinai, was shot dead in front of his house on the
outskirts of Cairo.

In mid-October, President Abdel-Fattah El-Sisi extended a state of emergency
in designated areas of the North Sinai governorate for three months,
starting 31 October.

A state of emergency was originally declared in certain areas of the restive
province in August 2013, and has been consecutively renewed ever since.
