CAIRO: Ten soldiers were injured in an explosion targeting a military vehicle in Rafah last Friday morning, according to Youm7.
That same day four explosion attempts against military facilities and vehicles were thwarted by local eyewitnesses in the North Sinai villages of Rafah and Sheikh Zwayed.
Some locals from Sheikh Zwayed saw people placing an explosive on a road restricted to military vehicles and informed the local authorities that detonated it before it blew up.
Meanwhile, nearby the western entrance of Rafah, some locals reported to have seen masked people placing two explosives inside a military car. Both devices blew up without causing any casualties, according to official sources.
In North Sinai the military forces implemented their security system on the main roads, increasing the number of checkpoints and placing artificial humps and concrete barriers on the ground.
