CAIRO: Two civilians were killed and 3 others injured in Sheikh Zuwayed after a shell targeted their house Thursday, Youm7 reported. They were referred to hospital immediately and high security measures were imposed.
In Arish, a police officer was injured after an armed attack against him. Youm7 reported that he was driving a government-owned car, anonymous armed men stopped him and a fight took place between them, leading the armed man to shoot toward the car’s driver.
Another 11 alleged terrorists were arrested in North Sinai Wednesday during military operations, along with destroying a number of bases reportedly belonging to them.
Eyewitnesses told Youm7 they have heard live fire through the night, and have seen militants waving Islamic State group flags.
