The court in Ismailia, northeast Egypt, also sentenced 32 people to life imprisonment, while two others were given 15 years.
The accused were found guilty of killing several soldiers in an attack on a checkpoint and an army vehicle two years ago, a military source said.
The eight who were sentenced to death were not present in court, a judicial source told AFP without elaborating.
