Egypt's military said Saturday it had killed eight militants in airstrikes in the Western Desert, as it leads a major campaign against Daesh (ISIS).The military said "other people" had been arrested during the operation, but did not give details.Egypt launched an operation dubbed "Sinai 2018" a year ago, in a bid to dislodge Daesh from the northeastern Sinai Peninsula and other parts of the country, including the Western Desert bordering Libya.The security forces regularly announce that alleged militants have been killed, but rarely identify the deceased, the groups they support, or the operations they were purportedly planning.
