The security agencies in cooperation with the army arrested five terrorists who were involved in the explosion of South Sinai Security Department a few days ago. Ansar Bayt al-Maqdes, a Sinai-based Jihadist group, has claimed responsibility for the attack that targeted police and army officers.
On Monday, a suicide bomber detonated the explosive-laden car he was driving outside the South Sinai Security Department. The explosion left three conscripts killed and more than 50 security men injured.
Following the attack, Interior Minister Mohamed Ibrahim ordered intensifying security deployment in the area and setting up security cordons to help arrest the militants responsible for carrying out the attack.
