Three killed as militants attack Egypt’s army post in Sinai

An Egyptian military tank is deployed in the northern Sinai town of Al-Arish on July 16, 2013.

Three civilians were killed on Friday when suspected Islamist militants fired RPG rockets at an army checkpoint in el-Arish in Egypt’s restive Sinai Peninsula, Al Arabiya correspondent reported from Sinai.

The assailants hit a residential house by mistake, and one of those killed had his legs and head blown off in the attack, hospital sources told AFP.

Military helicopters engaged the assailants and the fighting was ongoing, Al Arabiya correspondent reported.
