Seven Killed in Egypt’s Sinai amid Rising Insecurity

Seven Killed in Egypt’s Sinai amid Rising Insecurity

Alwaght- At least seven people have been killed following a shootout in Egypt's resistive Sinai Peninsula on Wednesday amid rising insecurity in the country.

Two conscripts and five others were killed after a terrorist wearing a suicide vest attempted to "storm" a checkpoint outside the town of Rafah, near Egypt's border with the Gaza strip, according to Colonel Tamer el-Rifai.

No group immediately assumed responsibility for the attack, which also wounded two others.

The incident occurred just two days after a deadly ISIS attack in the restive region claimed the lives of 18 policemen.

Monday's attack by ISIS was the deadliest against government security forces since July, when the group attacked a remote army outpost in Rafah, killing 23 soldiers.

Egypt has battled fighters in Sinai for years, but the rebellion became far more deadly after the 2013 military removal of Mohamed Morsi.

The intensified violence in Sinai over the last four years has been used by the Egyptian government to escalate repression throughout the country.
