CAIRO (Sputnik) — Seven civilians were killed in the north of the Sinai Peninsula in a terrorist attack by a car bomb explosion near ​​the checkpoint in the vicinity of the city of Arish, the Egyptian Armed Forces said Monday.

According to the military, the terrorists drove up to the checkpoint in a jeep and intended to explode their car in the midst of people, but the servicemen prevented these plans, denying the car a pass, according to the statement of the armed forces on their Facebook page.

The army tank blocked the road to the terrorists. The militants embarked in a shoot-out with servicemen and detonated a bomb in the car near the tank, resulting in seven civilians killed, including three men, two women and two children. The armed forces stressed that if a car exploded directly at the checkpoint, dozens of people would have been killed.
