Child killed by Egyptian army in North Sinai



A child was killed and four others were injured in a raid by the Egyptian armed forces on North Sinai Saturday.
 
Eyewitnesses said two Apache helicopters heavily bombed a number of villages in Sheikh Zuwaid, North Sinai.
 
A shell fell on the child's home leading to the death of the child and the injury of four others who were transferred to Arish hospital. 
 
The Egyptian armed forces are conducting military operations in Sinai targeting extremist elements that authorities believe have been involved in several bloody attacks against the army and police since the ouster of Mohamed Morsy in 2013.
