Egypt has been facing anti-government attacks, mostly in the Sinai Peninsula, which killed hundreds of police and soldiers since 2013.

Most of the terror attacks have been claimed by Ansar Bayt al-Maqdis militant group, which has changed its name to “Sinai State” and declared loyalty to the Islamic State.
