Two conscripts and five others were killed after a suicide bomber attempted to “storm” a checkpoint outside the town of Rafah, near Egypt’s border with the Gaza strip, according to Colonel Tamer el-Rifai.

 

No group immediately assumed responsibility for the attack, which also wounded two others.

 

The incident occurred just two days after a deadly ISIL attack in the restive region claimed the lives of 18 policemen.
