During the campaigns, the forces destroyed three cars and 13 motorbikes, and confiscated two explosive belts, 13 explosive circuits, in addition to different types of weapons and ammunitions, the statement added.

The forces also managed to dismantle 16 explosive devices that have been planted on the roads to target security men, it added.

Egypt has been suffering growing anti-government terrorist attacks that killed hundreds of policemen and soldiers since the army ousted Islamist president Mohamed Morsi in July 2013 in response to mass protests against his rule.
