EL-ARISH, Egypt (Ma’an) – Egyptian forces thwarted two booby-trap car attacks in Sheikh Zuweid in North Sinai district Sunday evening, an Egyptian military spokesman said.

Maj.-Gen. Ahmad Ali told reporters that army sappers safely detonated a booby-trapped minibus before it arrived at a military base in Sheikh Zuweid.

Another booby-trapped vehicle was safely detonated while it was parked at the side of a road used by Egyptian military vehicles.

The spokesman added that Egyptian forces raided several neighborhoods in Rafah and Sheikh Zuweid in North Sinai.

He said the forces managed to uncover and destroy five smuggling tunnels. Hideouts and vehicles used by "Jihadist" gunmen were also destroyed during the raids, he said.
