On the Sinai Peninsula in Egypt, 10 soldiers suffered as a result of an armored personnel carrier explosion. DW news agency reports with reference to the representative of the Armed forces of Egypt, Tamer al-Ref.
An army spokesman said that 10 soldiers were injured during the incident, but did not specify how many were killed. There was one officer in the group that was traveling in an armored vehicle.
According to Rafai, the explosion occurred south of the small town of Bir al-Abd. He noted that not a single group claimed responsibility for the attack.
At the same time, Egyptian President Abdel Fattah El Sissi expressed his condolences in a post on Facebook, praising the soldiers as heroes and martyrs.
Note that for many years the Egyptian military led a bloody rebellion against Islamic militants in Egypt. Violence intensified in 2013 after the army overthrew President Mohammed Mursi.
In 2018, Egyptian security forces launched a nationwide operation targeting militants, focusing on the troubled area of North Sinai.
According to the army, at least 845 suspected militants were killed in the region, as well as more than 60 security personnel.
