Seven civilians killed by auto bomb in North Sinai

Seven civilians killed by auto bomb in North Sinai

The army also destroyed 20 vehicles belonging to terrorist elements, four motorcycles and four car-bombs that were meant to target security forces.

However, the bomb exploded after the tank had driven away and seven civilians were caught in the blast, including two children.

Egypt's armed forces are hailing an armored tank driver for intercepting and crushing an explosive-laden vehicle that was targeting a checkpoint in North Sinai.

Panic stricken-civilians can be seen running for cover in the video footage.

Dozens of lives have been saved thanks to a fearless tank driver who drove over a auto moments before it exploded.

The attacks mainly targeting police and military, increased after the ouster of Islamist ex-president Mohamed Morsi in 2013 by military following massive protests against his rule. The armed forces stressed that if a auto exploded directly at the checkpoint, dozens of people would have been killed. The jihadists have threatened to carry out further attacks on Christians, who make up about 10 percent of Egypt's 90 million people.

"Three men, two women, and two children were killed".

Seven civilians, including two young children, were killed by a vehicle bomb that exploded at a security checkpoint in the Sinai Peninsula on Monday (July 24), Egypt's army spokesman said. Later, on July 14, gunmen reportedly ambushed an Egyptian security checkpoint killing five policemen in an area just south of the capital.
