Armed militants attacked the Al-Ahly bank with intense gunfire in Al-Arish in North Sinai on Monday, leading to the death of security officer.

Security forces exchanged gunfire with the militants for more than half an hour.

A security source confirmed that the bank was evacuated of workers, employees and clients, who were safely transferred away from the area in a military tank.

A doctor in North Sinai said Ahmed Galal, a security officer, died from a gunshot wound after doctors were unable to save him in Al-Arish military hospital.

          Hi Abdul. I really agree with you there. But…sometimes there aren’t many positives things going on….at all. I was just trying to have some hope….it’s been difficult and trying times here this past summer. Now with other devasting news in Syria….bad things just never seem to end. How I wish it would.
