Twelve Central Security Forces conscripts were injured earlier Thursday in clashes with low-ranking police officers in a security camp in Al-Tur city in Egypt's Sinai Peninsula.

About 350 conscripts went on hunger strike in the camp located in Al-Gobail village in Al-Tur (southern Sinai) in protest of what they called "bad treatment" at the hands of their commanding officers.

According to Al-Ahram's Arabic-language news website, several low-ranking police officers went to the camp in an attempt to convince them to end the strike.

However, the conscripts refused and arguments broke out between both sides leading to clashes and stone-throwing.

Several of the injured conscripts were transferred to Al-Tur Hospital and were released after receiving medical treatment.
