t least two militants were killed in clashes with police forces on Sunday during an exchange of fire, state media reported, adding that others were arrested in the process.
Police sources said that no officers or soldiers were injured in the process. However, the Ministry of Interior has not published statement on the incident yet.
Local media reports said that the suspects may have been involved in the assassination of a police officer in the district of Al-Khanka.
Shootings that target police, army officers, and state officials have become a near weekly occurrence in Egypt since the ousting of former Islamist president Mohamed Morsi in July 2013.
On 15 July, five policemen were killed in an ambush as militants attacked a security squad in the city of Badrashein in Giza. The assailants used a motorcycle to execute the attack. The five victims were three conscripts and two low-ranking officers.
Although militant insurgency has been predominantly active in North Sinai, militant attacks targeting public facilities as well as police and army facilities and personnel have spilled out of the volatile peninsula, often in the form of drive-by shootings and improvised explosive device (IED) attacks.
