Lebanese President Michel Aoun has condemned the terror attack that took place in Arish، North Sinai، and left several policemen killed and wounded.
In a cable to President Abdel Fattah El Sisi، Aoun asserted solidarity with the Egyptian people in the fight against terrorism.
Militants detonated a roadside bomb near the town of el-Arish، reportedly destroying three armoured vehicles and a fourth with signal-jamming equipment.
They then opened fire with machine guns at survivors of the blast.
The interior ministry confirmed there had been an attack and that several policemen had been killed or injured.
The jihadists have also killed dozens of people in attacks targeting Egypt's Coptic Christian minority elsewhere in the country، and claimed it planted the bomb that brought down a plane carrying tourists in Sinai in 2015، killing 224 people on board.
