One policeman has been injured in a militant attack on a police station in Al-Arish, North Sinai, the interior ministry said Saturday.

The ministry said in a statement published on its official Facebook page that policeman Sabry Mohamed was among a group of security forces at a police station in Al-Arish when unknown militants fired at them.

Security forces "responded at the fire and stopped it." Mohamed was injured in his leg, according to the statement.

The Sinai Peninsula, near Egypt's borders with Israel and the Palestinian Gaza Strip, has been plagued with almost daily attacks by militants since the army's ouster of Mohamed Morsi, the country's erstwhile elected president, on 3 July.

At least 24 policemen and soldiers have been killed in similar attacks since Morsi's removal.
