The Egyptian Army and pro-government tribe forces eliminated 4 ISIS militants in the North Sinai region in late November. The militants were eliminated near the village of Qasruit,  which is located west of the town of Bir al-Abd.

Over the past year, government forces have conducted a series of successful combing operations hunting down ISIS cells in the region. This undermined capabilities of the terrorist group to stage large-scale attacks army positions and civilian targets in the region. Nonetheless, ISIS cells were not fully eliminated. They shifted tactics staging more individual attacks, deploying snipers, and planting IEDs.
