Last week, a police conscript was shot by a militant while he was driving a prisoner transport vehicle in the Sidi Gaber district of Alexandria. Only a day earlier, militants opened fire on an armed forces officer on his way to work in El-Marg, in north-east Cairo. He was transferred to hospital due to multiple injuries as a result of the attack.
Policemen and army personnel have been a target by assailants and militants recently in governorates across Egypt particularly in the restive Sinai Peninsula.
