They say the attacker, driving a car filled with explosives, struck a checkpoint near the town of Rafah manned by members of the powerful Tarabeen tribe.

The army has been battling a so-called Islamic State affiliate in northern Sinai since 2014.

Last week, clashes erupted between the militants and local tribes after I.S. fighters shot at a truck smuggling cigarettes into an area where the extremists have banned tobacco.
