An explosion near the military intelligence building in Anshas, Sharqeya on Sunday morning resulted in four injured soldiers.

According to the military spokesman bureau, the explosion was caused by a car bomb, causing damage to the building.

The source denied that any perpetrators were arrested until time of print.

A statement issued by the military spokesman said that the explosion caused partial damage to the fence surrounding the structure and the administrative building.

This is the second military intelligence building to be targeted after the ousting of former President Morsi; a car bomb exploded near the military Intelligence building in Ismailia on 19 October, leaving six injured and the building’s fence destroyed.

Two days later, Sinai-based jihadist group Ansar Beit Al-Maqdis claimed responsibility for the Ismailia attack.

Sunday’s explosion occurred in the wake of several bombings Egypt had witnessed during the past week.

A Monday night explosion at the Daqahleya security directorate in Mansoura, 30 kilometres away from Anshas, killed at least 16 people and injured over 100.

A homemade bomb exploded under a public bus in Nasr City on Thursday, resulting in five minor injuries.

An improvised explosive device (IED) was found and deactivated inside a public bus in Al-Hegaz Squarex in Heliopolis on Saturday afternoon.
