The Egyptian army killed 20 al-Qaida-led Islamist terrorists and wounded 50 others in a military operation in Sinai in the past 48 hours, Egyptian newspaper Al Gomhuria reported on Thursday.

An Egyptian military source told the paper that 95% of the tunnels used to smuggle weapons into the Gaza Strip have been destroyed.

The Egyptian military, that has been working in recent weeks to rid the peninsula of terrorism, is expected to announce the success of its operation in the coming days, the paper reported.
