Yesterday 35 soldiers at least have been killed in a fight against islamists.
Is there a risk to see the rise of a new ISIS in Egypt?

Authorities have also been fighting the Egyptian branch of the jihadist group Islamic State, which has increased its attacks in the north of the Sinai peninsula.

Hundreds of soldiers and police have been killed in the violence.

The Islamic State group's deadly attacks on the military and police include a recent assault on a checkpoint in Sinai on July 7 that killed at least 21 soldiers.

The group has maintained a steady war of attrition with sniper attacks and roadside bombings.

But unlike their parent organisation in Iraq and Syria, they have been unable to seize population centres in the peninsula bordering Israel and Gaza.

In October 2015, IS claimed the bombing of a Russian airliner carrying holidaymakers from the popular South Sinai resort of Sharm el-Sheikh, killing all 224 people on board.

Death toll rises in attack on Egyptian police officers in Giza

Security sources say at least 52 police officers killed in shoot-out with suspected militants in Giza, southwest Cairo

The officers were killed on Friday during a raid on a suspected militant hideout in Egypt’s Western desert.

The sources said authorities were following a lead to an apartment thought to house eight suspected members of Hasm, a group which has claimed several attacks around the capital targeting judges and policemen since last year.
