cairo - Ten Egyptian soldiers, including a colonel, were killed on Friday by a bomb attack on a military post in North Sinai, according to security sources.
Two vehicles were blown by suicide terrorists at the time they drove past the checkpoint in an area between Rafah and Sheikh Zuweid. No group claimed the responsibility for the attack.
Egypt is buried under an uprising under the leadership of Islamic State in northeastern Sinai. Already hundreds of soldiers and police officers have been killed since 2013. In that year, Islamist elected President Mohamed Mursi was expelled by military forces after massive protests.
