According to the correspondent of Al-Ahram Arabic news website in Sharqiya, Ismail Ali Amin, 37, was killed after two unknown assailants fired on him from a motorcycle. 
 
Amin was returning from his job at the National Security Apparatus in the city. 
 
At least 19 security personnel, mostly from the police, have been killed or injured in Sharqiya governorate since the July 2013 ouster of former president Mohamed Morsi, amid a rapid increase in attacks on security forces across Egypt.
 
The attack came only hours after an attack on an army unit in North Sinai left 31 soldiers killed and 30 injured.
 
President Abdel-Fattah El-Sisi declared a 3-months state of emergency in parts of North Sinai on Friday night.
