EL-ARISH, Egypt (Ma’an) -- Armed Bedouin men blocked a road in central Sinai Thursday morning, using rocks and burning tires to stop traffic in a protest against Israel.
Members of the group, which gathered near Nakhl city, said they were protesting the arrest of one of their relatives who was accused of smuggling fuel belonging to the military.
They said the man, who was not identified, was being held by military prosecutors in Suez.
