Gunmen on Tuesday evening attacked security forces near St. Catherine's Monastery in Egypt's south Sinai killing at least one police officer and injuring four others.
The attack happened just a week after the Islamist terrorist linked to Daesh laid siege on a church killing more than 40 people.
Daesh also known as ISIS or ISIL claimed responsibility for the Tuesday attack on security
St. Catherine is one of the world’s most important Christian sites and was built in the late 6th century and is registered as a UNESCO world heritage site.
On April 9, at least 17 people were killed and more than 40 injured after a bomb targeted a church in Alexandria. The attack took place just hours after a church in the city of Tanta near Cairo was targeted with a remote-controlled bomb, killing at least 27 people and wounding around 80 others.
