Bomb Attack Kills 6 Soldiers in Egypt’s Peninsula

KABUL: (Middle East Press) A roadside bomb targeted the armored vehicle of the Egyptian security forces in which at least six soldiers have been killed and three others sustained injuries in Egypt’s restive Sinai Peninsula, security sources reported.

The attack took place on Sunday in the northern part of the Sinai Peninsula, said the Egyptian officials.

No group has claimed responsibility for the deadly attack so far, however, it is believed to be a stronghold of the militant group, Ansar Beit al-Maqdis, which changed its name to Velayat Sinai after swearing allegiance to ISIL Takfiri terrorist group.

A residential area south of Sheikh Zuweid was also hit by mortar fire last Wednesday, killing nine civilians, said Egyptian officials.
