Arish Airport still closed due to security situation in Sinai

President of the Egyptian Company for Airports, Gad al-Karim Nasr, has said that Arish Airport in North Sinai will remain closed to air traffic due to the security situation, pointing to armed elements targeting security forces in the region.
 
The airport was serving flights carrying Palestinians coming back to the Gaza Strip from Saudi Arabia, the Gulf states and Jordan, in addition to flights from other domestic airports.
 
He said that the airport staff will continue to work, though under difficult conditions.
