 Military aircraft were spotted over the villages of al-Mokataa and al-Gorah on Tuesday, eyewitnesses said.

Witnesses in the Sinai villages, south of Sheikh Zuweid, said that they also saw explosions and smoke.

The Sinai Peninsula has been on a continuous high security alert since the army, ousted former president Moursi on July 3, following mass protests. After the dispersal of sit-ins at Rabaa al-Adaweya and Nahda squares in support of the Muslim Brotherhood, there has been an increased wave of attacks in the peninsula targeting the army and police.
