DAMASCUS, SYRIA (0:10 P.M.) – On Saturday, a mine planted by ISIS insurgents near the port city of Al-Arish injured 9 Egyptian soldiers, including 2 officers, according to Amaq Agency. An armored vehicle was destroyed by the blast.

The incident occured at the Al-Buraiky checkpoint, south of Al-Arish city.

Recently, the Islamic State’s media department posted pictures online showing its militants setting up checkpoints across Sinai province.

Although jihadist insurgents regularly target the Egyptian Armed Forces in the Sinai desert, they maintain merely an underground presence and are yet to establish actual control over areas of Egypt.

In a propganda video released last month, ISIS called on its followers to slaughter members of the country’s Christian minority, known as Orthodox Copts.
