The war against terrorism is alive and well in the Middle East, and recent attacks from Islamist militants upset over the removal and outlaw of the
Muslim Brotherhood has continued it's attack on Egyptian security forces.
At least five soldiers and a man whose occupation is yet to be revealed were wounded on Saturday when a car bomb exploded near an army
intelligence building in Ismailia, northeast of Cairo, security sources and state media said.
The sources said another undetonated car bomb was found while security personnel were sweeping the area. The force of the blast caused part of the
military intelligence building's wall to collapse, one of the sources said.
Army recruit Abdel-Salam El-Sayed, 24, suffered a 3-cm wound to the head, while Mohamed Saber, a 21-year-old soldier, sustained a back injury and a
6-cm wound to the head.
Senior Warrant Officer Ahmed El-Shafei, 40, suffered a 4-cm wound to the head. All three were rushed to the Military Galaa Hospital, according to
Al-Ahram's Arabic website.
Sergeant Ahmed Ibrahim, 32, was wounded in the eye and was taken to the Public Hospital, while 20-year-old Abdel-Ghani Mostafa sustained a 2-cm wound
to the neck. The latter was treated at the scene.
Abdel Kader Ahmed, a 58-year-old man who lives in the area, is in a coma, Al-Ahram reported. He suffered injuries to the torso and abdominal area and
is now in the University Hospital.
No group has claimed responsibility, but al Qaeda-linked Islamist militants in the largely lawless Sinai region have stepped up attacks on

Security personnel searching the area found another car bomb, which had not gone off, state media and security sources said. Heavy smoke could be seen
rising from a building nearby.
The force of the blast caused part of the military intelligence building's outer wall to collapse.
Some security sources said the bomb was planted in a car belonging to a doctor who lived in a nearby building.
Terrorists are having a field day in the Middle East causing one wave of death and destruction after another. Iraq, Syria, Libya, Afghanistan,
Pakistan, and more all report terrorists attacks weekly, some almost daily. Is this what America and the West envisioned when they brought the war to
the Middle East? From here it looks like a complete failure on their part but this all may be apart of their plan. Either we have complete incompetent
fools in charge or they know exactly what they're doing.
