Officials in Egypt say militants fired mortar rounds at a military post in the northern Sinai capital of el-Arish, killing three civilians in a nearby residential complex.
The attack comes as Israel's offensive against the neighboring Gaza Strip enters its sixth day. More than 160 Palestinians have been killed. Palestinian militant groups fired rockets at Israel but caused no deaths.
Militants in Sinai have also fired rockets at Israel in support of Palestinian groups. Officials here said they foiled some attempts.
