CAIRO, July 20 (Itar-Tass) - At least three people have been killed as a result of the latest attacks by militants in the north of the Sinai Peninsula. According to local media a group of extremists on Friday evening attacked army and police posts in the administrative center of North Sinai province near Gaza.
The extremists were grenade launchers and heavy machine-guns. All of those killed were civilians. The attackers escaped.
Tensions in Sinai have remained high since July 3, when the military deposed President Mohamed Morsi. The jihad militants operating in the peninsula mount daily attacks against the combined army and police force. Over twenty people have died at their hands lately. Over the past week alone ten Egyptians, including four police, were killed there.
The army command has declared that part of the country as a war-on-terror area. It has moved in considerable reinforcements, including heavy armaments, combat aircraft and commando units.
On Monday night militants fired a grenade at a bus carrying cement mill workers. Three died and some twenty others were injured.
