CAIRO (Ma'an) -- Two Egyptian soldiers were killed on Wednesday evening after unidentified gunmen targeted a military vehicle in the Sinai Province.
The bodies of the soldiers were reportedly taken to the Suez General Hospital.
Egyptian military and police forces have been the target of ongoing attacks, which have increased since Egyptian President Abd al-Fattah al-Sisi took power from democratically-elected Muhammad Morsi of the Muslim Brotherhood in 2013.
Sisi has come under attack following his violent suppression of Muslim Brotherhood members following his rise to power, which he has argued is necessary to deter future attacks in the Sinai and across Egypt.
Sinai Province, the militant group responsible for a majority of attacks on military personnel in the Sinai, aligned with the Islamic State group in November 2014.
