At least 10 army personnel were killed, with 16 injured on Friday in a suicide bomb attack in northern Sinai, when two vehicles detonated while passing an army checkpoint in an area between Rafah and Sheikh Zuweid.
Four additional vehicles were destroyed by security forces, killing 40 extremist militants, the Armed Forces Spokesperson claimed in a short statement.
Sinai is facing an Islamist insurgency led by ‘Sinai Province’ militant group in North Sinai, where hundreds of soldiers and police have been killed since 2013, when the military ousted former president Mohamed Morsi after mass protests.Egypt Independent News
