Egyptian soldiers killed in Sinai
Four Egyptian soldiers were killed in the Sinai Peninsula, where the local branch of the Islamic State group regularly attacks security forces, the army said. The troops were killed during operations around El-Arish in northern Sinai province, close to the border with the Gaza Strip. Six jihadists were killed during the same operation and others were arrested. Also in El-Arish, three policemen and three civilians were wounded when a suicide bomber detonated a car bomb near a security convoy.
