EL-ARISH, Egypt (Ma'an) -- An Egyptian army officer was shot dead on Friday in the northern Sinai peninsula, Egyptian security sources said.

The officer was shot in the head in the city of El-Arish by a sniper "seemingly affiliated to extremist groups," the sources told Ma'an.

The Egyptian officer was identified as Rida Hannad Awad and transferred to a hospital in the city.

On Monday, Egyptian military forces foiled an attempted car-bombing near a Sinai base, security sources said.

Security forces have waged a campaign in the desert Sinai region to reign in militant groups, after 16 Egyptian border guards were killed in an attack on their post in August.
