In the night of Thursday, September 14, I received information about a shootout at a checkpoint in the North Sinai Peninsula. According to the Agency MENA, as a result of the clashes had killed five militants and two Egyptian soldiers.
Several militants fled the scene. The military pursued them, and one of the militants tried to trigger the «suicide belt», but was shot, according to the command of the Egyptian army.
Recall that on 11 September in the city of El-Arish, in Northern Sinai, militants killed 18 Egyptian police. Responsibility for the attack took on terrorist organization «wilayat Sinai» associated with the «Islamic state».
