The militants blew themselves up outside the camp after they were prevented by security forces from entering, an army statement said.

The security forces have arrested suspects and demolished houses that belong to terrorists, including those facilitating tunnels leading to the Gaza Strip.

The military said earlier that 27 militants were killed over the last few days in a sweeping operation launched on February 9 in the Sinai to quash extremists based in the peninsula.

Militants who have declared allegiance to the Islamic State group (IS) have killed hundreds of soldiers and policemen in the Sinai since the military ousted Islamist president Mohamed Morsi in 2013, following mass protests against him.

Meanwhile, the official gazette said that Egypt is to extend its nationwide state of emergency for three months from April 14.

In the confrontation, the security forces foiled the attack by killing all the terrorists, Xinhua news agency reported citing the statement.

President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi ordered security forces to use heavy force to stamp out the Sinai insurgency following the devastating Rawda mosque attack in November 2017, which took the lives of over 300 worshipers.

Prime Minister Sherif Ismail also extended an overnight curfew in parts of North Sinai, where IS´s Egypt affiliate is based, according to another decree published on Saturday by the official gazette.

The state of emergency includes a curfew in parts of North Sinai from 7pm until 6am, except in El-Arish city and on the global road, where the curfew is in effect from1am to 5am.
