Army denies Egyptian officers died in Decisive Storm

Army spokesperson Mohamed Samir said in a statement on Tuesday that the information circulated on the social media, regarding Egyptian army officers and soldiers allegedly killed or wounded during the Decisive Storm military operation in Yemen is false, and that it comes from "certain hostile parties."  
Samir said the presidency had confirmed on March 26 that only the Egyptian navy and air force are participating in the operation.  
He denied that Egypt had sent any ground troops to Yemen, and called for the media to refer to the official military spokesperson as the sole source of information concerning the operations carried out by the Armed Forces.
