Suicide bombers and gunman armed with grenades attacked around dawn.

The attack was the largest against Egyptian security forces since President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi won a second term in office last month, promising to work for stability and security in Egypt.

The spokesman for Egypt's Armed Forces Tamer al-Refaei said in a statement on Saturday that the military had foiled a big terrorist plot in Sinai peninsula, as part of the ongoing operation Sinai 2018.

Four of the militants detonated their explosive belts, killing the soldiers and wounding 15 others, according to a statement from the Egyptian army. Morsi, a member of the Muslim Brotherhood, saw his presidency beset by popular protests.

It cited a decree issued by Sisi stating that the renewed three-month state of emergency would take effect from 1:00am on Saturday.

US, French, British Forces Launch Air Strike Against Syria
The assault came despite the lack of a definitive independent finding that chemical weapons were used or who had deployed them. Multiple government targets in Syria have been bombed by the US, UK and France force in response to a chemical weapons attack.

The emergency law gives police expanded powers to carry out arrests, surveillance and seizures. It was the deadliest such attack in Egypt in years.

More than 100 jihadists and at least 22 soldiers have been killed in the wider-ranging operation launched on February 9, according to army figures. It also came just hours after the country extended a state of emergency imposed a year ago.

Under Egypt's constitution, the three-month state of emergency can only be renewed once, but the president can subsequently reinstate it.

Egypt also extended a curfew on parts of North Sinai, including areas in the border towns of Rafah near the Palestinian enclave of Gaza Strip, it added.
