Two Central Security Forces (CSF) conscripts were killed and nine were injured when their vehicle was hit by a roadside explosive in North Sinai's Al-Arish city, Al-Ahram Arabic news website reported on Saturday. 

A security source told Al-Ahram that an improvised explosive device (IED) planted on the roadside went off as the APC was moving in Al-Arish’s Safaa neighborhood.

The source said the death toll might increase, adding that unknown assailants had detonated the IED remotely.

No group has yet claimed responsibility for the attack that comes only one day after 26 army personnel were killed or injured by car bombs that targeted a security checkpoint near Rafah in North Sinai.

The military has not provided a further breakdown of casualty figures.

The army said it was able to kill 40 militants during Friday’s Daesh claimed attack.
