An army tank had intercepted the vehicle and driven over it, nearly flattening it, before the explosives went off, according to a video released by the army.

The Egyptian Armed Forces said that seven civilians were killed in the north of the Sinai Peninsula in a terrorist attack by a auto bomb explosion near the checkpoint in the vicinity of the city of Arish.

The announcement came a day after seven civilians were killed in a foiled attack on a checkpoint with an explosives-laden vehicle.

The Sinai Peninsula has been under a state of emergency since October 2014, after a deadly terrorist attack left 33 Egyptian soldiers dead.
