An officer and ten Egyptian soldiers were killed after they “thwarted a terrorist attack” at a water lifting station east of the Suez Canal, an army spokesman said Saturday.

Security personnel were killed after clashes with a group of militants who attacked the station, injuring five others.

“The terrorist elements are being pursued and besieged in one of the isolated areas of Sinai,” the spokesman added in a statement.
