A car bomb exploded near the Military Intelligence building in Ismailia, at noon Saturday with no group claiming responsibility yet.

The Armed Forces spokesman, Colonel Ahmed Ali, released a statement saying that “An act of terrorism targeting the Military Intelligence office in Ismailia was committed after a car bomb exploded at noon today.”

The primary outcome losses resulting from the explosion is damage to the fence outside of the Military Intelligence building, and injury of three of its members.

“This is a continuation of a series of cowardly operations by terrorist groups motivated by dark goals against the Egyptian people, vital military installations and the general goals of the country”.
