ISIS has blown up a roadside bomb in the restive northern Sinai Peninsula, killing one member of\u00a0Egypt\u2019s security forces\u00a0and wounding three others, medical and security officials said late Thursday.\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\nThe explosion at dawn Thursday was triggered by a remote-controlled device that targeted an armored vehicle. It was carrying forces on a patrol mission along the Mediterranean coast of the town of Sheikh Zuweid, said the officials, who asked to remain anonymous because they were not authorized to brief the media.\r\nISIS has posted a statement\u00a0on a militant-affiliated website claiming responsibility for the attack.\r\nEgypt has been battling\u00a0ISIS-led insurgency in the Sinai\u00a0that intensified after the military overthrew an extremist president in 2013. The militants have carried out scores of attacks, mainly targeting security forces and minority Christians.\r\nThe conflict in Sinai has largely taken place out of public view, with journalists and outside observers barred from the area. The fighting has so far not expanded into the southern end of the peninsula, where popular Red Sea tourist resorts are located.\r\nIn February 2018, the military launched a massive operation in Sinai that also encompassed parts of the Nile Delta and deserts along the country\u2019s western border with Libya. Since then, the pace of ISIS attacks in Sinai\u2019s north has diminished.
