EL-ARISH, Egypt (Ma’an) -- A parade of Egyptian military vehicles survived an explosion Monday afternoon in Rafah in the northernmost Sinai Peninsula.

Security sources told Ma’an that a very highly explosive roadside device was detonated when a parade moved near the Unknown Soldier square in Rafah. Nobody was harmed despite the severity of the explosion, the source added.

Separately, Egyptian military forces discovered another explosive device and safely detonated it after they evacuated the area to make sure nobody was hurt. Locals in Rafah in Egypt and in the Gaza Strip said they heard a very huge blast.

In the nearby city of el-Arish, four masked gunmen stopped a money transfer vehicle and forced its driver to run away at gunpoint. Egyptian security sources said the vehicle belonged to the Bank of Egypt and there was no cash in it. They highlighted that “Takfirists” might try to booby-trap the vehicle and use it to ambush Egyptian officers.
