ISIS have unveiled a new jihadi training camp in the Egyptian desert as the group continues to pose a threat in the Sinai peninsula.
The images were taken at the Abu Hajr al-Masri training camp, named after a former Egyptian jihadi and is situated in the remote Sinai desert.
The small group of recruits are shown practicing with weapons and undergoing fitness training.
All of the fighters appear to be wearing the same matching black robes and beige coloured balaclavas to obscure their identity.
They are pictured handling machine guns and practicing military tactics in different formations.
Some of the fighters are shown tackling an assault course, including jumping through burning metal hoops and crawling along the ground.
