Recall that on 7 July in Egypt, ten soldiers were killed due to militant attacks.

A military officer and three policemen were gunned down in Egypt's restive Sinai Peninsula on Wednesday, according to a local security source, Anadolu Agency reports.

They said the policemen were heading to the town of el-Arish early Wednesday when gunmen attacked the auto they were riding in and opened fire, killing one police officer, a low-ranking policeman and two conscripts. Two gunmen were killed before the exchange of fire that killed the policeman.

Gunmen forced the policemen's vehicle to stop and shot them dead, a security source told dpa on condition of anonymity.

The Sinai Peninsula has remained the epicenter of a deadly militant insurgency since mid-2013, when the military deposed Mohamed Morsi, Egypt's first freely-elected president, in a military coup.

The regime has also arrested thousands of suspected government opponents, fueling further anger against the regime.
