Egypt: 10 soldiers killed in a blitz car bomb attack in Sinai El-ArishUpdated on : 07-07-2017 03:55 PM
At least 10 killed in a blitz car bomb attack in Egypt's Sinai El-Arish. Egyptian officials said at least 10 security troops have been killed when a car bomb struck a military checkpoint followed by heavy gunfire in north-eastern Sinai Peninsula.


The officials said that the Friday attack started when a suicide car bomber rammed his vehicle into the checkpoint in southern Rafah village of el-Barth, followed by heavy shooting by dozens of masked militants on foot.

The dead included a high ranking Special Forces officer and at least 20 others were wounded in the attack.

No group immediately claimed responsibility for the attack. In recent years, Egypt has been battling a stepped-up insurgency in northern Sinai, mainly by militants from an Islamic State group affiliate.
