CAIRO (Ma'an) -- An Egyptian soldier was killed on Friday and two other soldiers, including an officer, were wounded during violent clashes between the Egyptian army and gunmen in Rafah, military sources said.

The Egyptian army raided a stronghold of "jihadist elements," the sources said, and "violent clashes occurred between the two sides."

Egyptian armed forces launched large scale military action against militants in the Sinai Peninsula earlier in September, in what officials described as the largest mobilization of force in the area since the 1973 war with Israel.

The military action comes in the wake of rising instability and almost daily attacks in the region, following a July 3 coup by the Egyptian military which unseated President Mohammad Morsi.
