Report: Assassination attempt on Egyptian army commander thwarted

Published: 03.23.14, 00:55 / Israel News

An assassination attempted on the life of Egyptian Army Chief of Staff Lieutenant-General Sedki Sobhi was thwarted on Saturday, Sinai security sources told Palestinian news agency Ma'an.


According to the unconfirmed report, a barrel with TNT was found at the el-Arish Airport while Sobhi was on a tour of one of the military facilities in the city.


The barrel, that weighted a quarter of a ton, was supposed to explode when Sobhi arrived at the airport, the report said, but security forces blew it up in a controlled environment before the chief of staff's arrival. (Roi Kais)
