Four Egyptian soldiers were injured late Wednesday when an explosive charge detonated at an armored vehicle in North Sinai.
A security source said the charge was planted by unidentified assailants in al-Sakadra village.
The soldiers sustained slight injuries and were treated on the spot, the source said.
Unidentified "militants" have stepped up attacks on police and army targets since the military's July 3 ouster of elected President Mohamed Morsi, killing scores of police and army personnel, according to Egypt's military-backed government.
The Egyptian army is currently carrying out what military experts say is the largest military operation in recent history in Egypt's restive Sinai Peninsula with the stated aim of combating "militancy and terrorism."Last Mod: 26 Eylül 2013, 09:51
