Police officer shot in Sharqeya

Roadside bomb explodes in North Sinai, no injuries reported

By Sarah El Sheikh

A police officer was shot in the shoulder by unknown assailants late Sunday in the Delta governorate of Sharqeya.

Amir Samir, 29 was on his way home from work at El-Ibrahimiya police station when he was targeted.

Samir was transferred to the hospital for treatment, and the prosecution has launched an investigation to identify the suspects.

Meanwhile, a roadside bomb exploded in Al-Bahr Street in the Al-Masaaed district in North Sinai near an armoured police vehicle that was passing by. The explosion did not leave any injuries or damage.

This week, Sinai witnessed at least two attacks on police officers and armoured vehicles in Al-Arish in North Sinai, with two police officers and two police conscripts killed and 11 soldiers injured by roadside bombs.

Security personnel have been the main targets of militant activity since the ouster of former president Mohamed Morsi. Explosions in North Sinai occur in areas with a high security presence, including checkpoints and security campaigns.
