The shooting took place in the governorate’s capital city of Arish, according to the press service.
On Thursday, jihadist group Wilayat Sanai, an Egyptian ISIL affiliate, shot Interior Ministry’s General Khaled Kamal Osman in Al-Arish, opening fire from a car.
ISIL militants have claimed responsibility for a string of attacks on security and police officers across Egypt in recent months.
The extremist group has seized large areas in Syria and Iraq. A number of militant organizations in Egypt, Afghanistan, Libya and Nigeria among other countries have pledged their allegiance to ISIL.
