Two Egyptian soldiers and a policeman were killed in separate attacks in North Sinai on Tuesday, medical and security sources said, the latest in a string of attacks on the peninsula bordering Israel and the Suez Canal.
A roadside bomb killed an army officer and a non-commissioned officer while they were on patrol near the town of Sheikh Zuweid, the sources said. Ten soldiers were also wounded in that attack.
In a separate incident, a policeman was killed in a drive-by shooting near a camp for security forces in al-Arish, the main city in North Sinai, the sources said. The gunmen fled the scene.
There was no immediate claim of responsibility for the attacks.
