More than 60 Egyptian soldiers were killed Wednesday morning in a wave of militant attacks - which included at least one suicide bombing - in the northern Sinai Peninsula.

Militants armed with rocket-propelled grenades (RPGs) attacked at least 10 security checkpoints and a police station in Egypt’s North Sinai province, a security source told Al-Shorouk newspaper.

“At least 64 army and police personnel were killed in the terrorist attacks,” the source was quoted as saying.

A group affiliated with ISIS has since claimed responsibility for the attacks.

Speaking via Twitter, the Welayet Sinai (”Province of Sinai”) group said its militants had attacked more than 15 security checkpoints in North Sinai.
