Two soldiers were killed and four injured when gunmen stormed a border guard headquarters in the northern Sinai Peninsula on Thursday.
Eyewitnesses said gunmen exchanged fire for 30 minutes with army personnel manning the HQ before storming the building, located on the Arish-Sheikh Zuweid Road.
According to medical sources, two injured soldiers are currently in critical condition.
The area was cordoned off by army troops in the wake of the attack.
As of the filing of this report, there was no comment on the incident from Egyptian authorities.
In a separate attack the same day, a policeman was killed and another injured when unknown gunmen opened fire on their vehicle in central Arish.
At least 35 people, both civilians and security personnel, have been killed in a spate of attacks in Sinai since July 5, two days after the military ousted Mohamed Morsi, Egypt's first democratically elected president.
