Almeno sei militari egiziani sono stati uccisi e molti altri sono stati feriti in un attacco vicino alla città di Arish, nel governatorato del Sinai. Lo ha reso noto l’esercito egiziano. Secondo le informazioni disponibili, un gruppo di persone sconosciute ha attaccato il checkpoint, utilizzando bombe a mano e armi automatiche.

At least six Egyptian servicemen were killed and several others injured in an attack near the city of Arish in the country’s North Sinai governorate, the Egyptian army said in a statement on Friday. According to available information, a group of unknown persons attacked the checkpoint, using hand grenades and automatic weapons.Egypt has been fighting jihadist insurgency in northern Sinai since the army overthrew then-President Mohamed Morsi in 2013. Police and security forces have frequently been the target of deadly attacks staged by Islamists in the area. In 2014, Sinai’s indigenous militants pledged their allegiance to the Islamic State (IS) terrorist group, which is outlawed in many countries, including Russia. The Wilayat Sinai, the IS branch of Sinai, has claimed responsibility for a number of deadly attacks in the area.
