CAIRO Air Max 1 Sale Outlet , Sept. 10 (Xinhua) -- At least 10 terrorists were killed and nine policemen were wounded on Sunday during a security raid in Giza province near the capital Cairo, the Egyptian Interior Ministry said in a statement.
The terrorists were extremist elements escaping from North Sinai province and hiding in two apartments in Giza's Ard al-Liwaa district in preparation for carrying out a number of terror operations, said the police statement.
"Fire exchange with eight militants in the first apartment led to killing of them and shootout in the other apartment killed two," said the statement, noting that the gunfire was started by the militants and it continued for four hours.
"One of them threw an explosive device at the forces but it blew him off Air Max Sale Outlet ," it added.
The police said that the confrontations wounded nine policemen while four machine guns and ammunition were seized during the raid.
Since March, similar security campaigns killed about 50 militants in the provinces of Cairo, Giza, Alexandria, Beheira Nike Air Max 95 Sale Mens , Fayoum, Qalioubiya, Minufiya, Ismailia and others.
Egypt has been fighting against a wave of terror activities that killed hundreds of policemen and soldiers since the military toppled former Islamist president Mohamed Morsi in July 2013 in response to mass protests against his one-year rule and his currently outlawed Muslim Brotherhood group.
Terror attacks in Egypt used to focus on police and military men in North Sinai before spreading nationwide and targeting the Coptic minority as well, with most of them claimed by a Sinai-based group loyal to the regional Islamic State militant group.
Another militant group referring to itself as Hasm Nike Air Max 90 Sale Mens , which appeared late last year and is regarded by the police as an affiliate with the Brotherhood, claimed responsibility for a number of terrorist attacks that killed several policemen in the country.
Meanwhile, the Egyptian military and police have killed hundreds of militants and arrested a similar number of suspects as part of the country's anti-terror war declared by President Abdel-Fattah al-Sisi, the army chief then, following Morsi's removal.

the mission validated ground support capacities, craft landing technology and recoverable spacecraft technology.
According to Wu Weiren, chief designer of China's lunar exploration program, Chang'e-5 is expected to collect a 2-kg sample from two meters under the Moon's surface and bring it home.
Aside from the high-speed re-entry, major technological challenges for the craft center on surface sampling Nike Air Max Sale Mens , taking off from the Moon, and lunar orbit rendezvous, Wu said.
READY TO MAKE HISTORY, AGAIN
China launched a pair of orbiting lunar probes and last year landed a craft on the moon with a rover on board.
Saturday's success is another step forward for China's ambition that could eventually land a Chinese citizen there. Few countries can rival China's space program although China never intended to participate in any "space race".
In an earlier interview with Xinhua, Wu Weiren said lunar probe technology and software could be of great economic value if adapted for commercial use.
Commercial gains aside Air Max 95 Sale Mens , the space program is already a marker of China's global stature and technical expertise. The Chang'e lunar probes - named after a goddess who took her pet Yutu, or jade rabbit, to the moon - are a symbol of great national pride.
The country sent its first astronaut into space in 2003, becoming the third nation after Russia and the U.S. to achieve manned space travel independently. In 2008, astronauts aboard the Shenzhou-7 made China's first space walk. There are plans for a permanent space station Air Max 90 Sale Mens , expected to be set up around 2022.
The Chang'e-1 and Chang'e-2 missions in 2007 and 2010 respectively, capped the orbital phase of the three step project. Chang'e-1 crashed onto the Moon's surface at the end of its mission, and Chang'e-2 was sent into deep space to become China's first man-made asteroid.
The ongoing second phase saw Chang'e-3 soft land on the moon carrying moon rover Yutu in December 2013. Chang'e-4 was a backup for Chang'e-3 and has not been deployed.
In the meantime, Yutu has entered its 11th dormancy earlier October, although its functions have degraded considerably after it encountered control issues in January this year. Experts had feared that it might never function again Air Max 1 Sale Mens , but Yutu has stubbornly managed to wake up from its sleep mode ever since.
None of those missions were intended to return to Earth and this has pushed the 2017 mission further into spotlight.
"The Chang'e-5 mission will be yet another historic moment for China's lunar program," Wu said.
