EGYPTIAN army kills the Head of Sinai branch of Islamic state

The Egyptian military says it has killed the head of the Sinai branch of so-called Islamic State (IS), along with dozens of its fighters.

It said ABU DUAA AL-ANSARI was killed in a series of air strikes on fighters of the Sinai Province – or Ansar Beit al-Maqdis – group.

The air strikes targeted jihadist strongholds near the town of El-Arish.

Sinai Province is Egypt’s most active insurgent group and has been linked to deadly attacks in Sinai and Cairo.
