Security sources denied that the North Sinai radio station building had been attacked by militants on Friday.
There was earlier speculation about an attack on the building in the al-Masaeed neighborhood in Arish.
Confrontations between militant groups and military forces in North Sinai flared following the ouster of President Mohamed Morsy in July 2013.
Dozens of militants and security forces have lost their lives in the conflict.
