CAIRO, June 28 (Aswat Masriya) – Unidentified assailants shot at a security checkpoint on Saturday night in North Sinai’s Rafah, killing four soldiers, security sources at the army said.

The army force stationed at the Abu Shanar checkpoint fired back at the attackers but they escaped, the sources added.

Since former President Mohamed Mursi’s ouster in 2013, Sinai has been witness to escalating confrontations between police and army forces on one side and militant extremists on the other.
