Forensic examinations of the terrorists who killed 16 Egyptian soldiers and infiltrated Israel earlier this week reportedly revealed they were wearing uniforms manufactured in the Palestinian city of Nablus, Egyptian daily Al-Masry Al-Youm's English edition reported Thursday.

While Egyptian officials were conducting DNA tests on the bodies to try and ascertain their identity, the report said the men were in their thirties who had "Arab features."

The Egyptian military, with the aid of combat aircraft, has reportedly killed some 60 terrorists in Sinai since the attack Sunday. Egypt was also in the process of destroying smuggling tunnels connecting the peninsula with the Gaza Strip, according to the report.
