Egypt air base attack kills officer in North Sinai - military statement

Egypt air base attack kills officer in North Sinai - military statement”

An army officer was killed and another two were injured when unidentified attackers shelled the Al-Arish airport in Egypt's Sinai Peninsula, according to an army spokesman.

The ministry said in a statement that security forces located the terrorists' hideout in Obour, North of Cairo, adding that the terrorists opened fire at policemen after they were discovered.

In a statement posted on his official Facebook page, the spokesman said an officer was killed and two "other" people were wounded in Tuesday's attack.

News of the attack provided the first word that the ministers were visiting.

The security situation on the Sinai Peninsula remains unstable as numerous extremist groups, which are sheltering in local hard-to-reach areas, continue staging attacks against Egyptian security forces and civilian objects.

Terror attacks in Egypt killed hundreds of policemen and soldiers as well as dozens of the Coptic minority since the military toppled former Islamist President Mohamed Morsi in July 2013 due to mass protests against his one-year rule and his now outlawed Muslim Brotherhood group.

North Sinai province is the main stronghold of the terrorist groups in Egypt, especially the IS-affiliate "Sinai State", which claimed responsibility for killing hundreds of police and soldiers.
