Seven civilians were killed after a bomb exploded at a security checkpoint in North Sinai on July 24, according to the Egyptian Ministry of Defense. The military released a video of the attack south of al-Arish, which shows an army tank intercepting a vehicle as it approached the checkpoint. The tank drove over the vehicle, which reportedly contained four gunmen and 100kg of explosives, in an attempt to contain the blast, the military said.
