Gunmen fire on Arish security checkpoint

Unknown gunmen fired shots on al-Reesa security checkpoint, an embattled security position on the Arish-Rafah international road in North Sinai.
Security forces returned fire. No casualties were reported.

Eyewitnesses said the checkpoint was targeted by gunmen from surrounding hilly areas and that joint army and police troops exchanged fire with the assailants.

The same checkpoint has been targeted 48 times since the 2011 revolution. The last attack came on 5 September.
