Several Egyptian political parties say the Israeli spy agency Mossad may have been behind a deadly attack on a police station in the Egyptian city of al-Arish in troubled Sinai Peninsula.


During a meeting in the office of Egypt's al-Wafd party in al-Arish on Tuesday, several Egyptian political parties said Mossad may have been involved in the fatal attack that occurred on Friday, DPA reported.

During the Friday assault, six people were killed and more than 20 others were injured after masked gunmen driving about 150 vehicles attacked the police station in the city of al-Arish.

The Egyptian parties also said that those responsible for the attack have been connected to the former Egyptian regime.

The parties called on Egypt's ruling military council to enhance the country's security.
