Five Egyptian Soldiers Killed in Roadside Bomb

مقتل 33 جنديا على الأقل في هجومين بشمال سيناء وفرض الطوارئ

Five army personnel were killed and three more were injured when a military armoured vehicle exploded in North Sinai’s Sheikh Zuweid early Sunday, military sources said.

The injured personnel were transferred to the al-Arish Military Hospital for treatment, the sources said. Army forces cordoned the area of the explosion.

Militancy inside Egypt has seen a significant rise since July 2013, since the military ouster of Islamist President Mohamed Mursi, following mass protests against his rule. Most attacks target security forces in North Sinai.

Security forces killed over 300 suspected militants in security campaigns in North Sinai during the months of February and March, the armed forces spokesman announced in a number of separate statements.
