CAIRO:  The Ministry of Interior announced Sunday that it would install fixed and movable surveillance cameras at the checkpoints nationwide in light of enhancing protection for security personnel and civilians against terrorist attacks, Youm7 reported.

The movable cameras will be installed in well-equipped cars with data on cars’ plate numbers to monitor the traffic movements without stopping cars or vehicles, a security official at the ministry said on condition of anonymity as he was not authorized to speak to the media.

The new system enables security forces to identify stolen cars and invalid licenses of vehicles and cars, he added, noting that the cameras will monitor any possible dangers against the security personnel and civilians, particularly in areas that see repeated attacks on checkpoints.

Most of the attacks have taken place by shooting and planting explosives near security ambushes and installations, and have killed dozens of security personnel, as well as civilians.
