Egyptian sources reported on Sunday that terrorists had attacked Egyptian troops west of the city of Rafah in Egypt's North Sinai Governorate.

Iran PressAfrica: Egyptian sources say at least two Egyptian soldiers were killed and three others were wounded in the attack.

Last Sunday, a bomb exploded near a convoy of Egyptian troops in North Sinai province, killing at least eight Egyptian soldiers.

Various regions of Egypt, including the province of North Sinai, have faced increasing insecurity and terrorist attacks in recent years, especially after the overthrow of the government of Mohamed Morsi by the Egyptian army in 2013.

Increased insecurity and terrorist attacks in Egypt have caused great dissatisfaction among the Egyptian people with the current Egyptian President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi.

Former Egyptian President Mohamed Morsi was ousted in 2013 following a military coup led by Abdel Fattah al-Sisi.

Al-Sisi was Egypt's defense minister when the military coup happened.
