The Armed Forces denied reports that it halted its operation against
militants in Sinai, vowing to never negotiate with them.

After the killing of 16 Egyptian border guards at the border with Israel in
August, the army launched its biggest campaign in four decades to tackle
militants in the peninsula.

Israel has long accused Palestinian militant groups of crossing from Gaza to
Egypt to join local militants aiming to attack the Israeli border. In August
2011, armed militants entered Israel and killed eight Israelis near the
border.

Army spokesperson Ahmed Ali said in a statement that the Sinai operation has
successfully paved the way for comprehensive development in the peninsula,
with the help of Sinaiís inhabitants, whom he called an integral part of the
great Egyptian people.

The statement called on the media to accurately report the news and refer to
the military spokesperson for information.
