CAIRO, Feb. 3 (Xinhua) -- As many as 41 militants were killed and injured in an army raid on Monday on hideous of hardline Islamists in Egypt's North Sinai province, a security source told Xinhua.

"At least 15 dangerous jihadist elements were killed and wounded in the village of Goes Abou Raad in southern Rafah city, while 26 others were killed and injured in the village of Wady Al- Akhder in Sheikh Zuweid city," the source added.

Other 12 militants were arrested in the crackdown with weapons, explosive materials and ammunition in their possession, he added.

Security conditions have been deteriorating in the restive Sinai since the ouster of Islamist president Mohamed Morsi by the army last July, as the Islamist militants took from the Peninsula a stronghold for staging attacks against army and police facilities.
