ARISH, Egypt: Security forces in North Sinai are on high alert after a failed bombing attempt targeted an armored vehicle early Tuesday morning.

Immediately after the explosion, security forces attempted to search for the perpetrators without any success, the source added.

Patrols intensified in the streets of Arish, Sheikh Zuwayed, Rafah and the areas around state buildings following the botched attack.
