Landmine explodes in Arish, no casualties

A landmine planted by gunmen in the Al-Sabil district of Arish, North Sinai, exploded on Wednesday, minutes after a military armored vehicle passed over it. There were no casualties.

The soldiers opened fire indiscriminately in the direction of the blast.

A car bomb exploded in the same area last week, killing four people.

Since the ouster of President Mohamed Morsy, there has been an increase in bombings and shootings targeting the armed forces, police, and checkpoints in Sinai.
