WASHINGTON – The Defense Department says four U.S. soldiers and two Multinational Force and Observers' peacekeepers were injured by improvised explosive devices Thursday in the Northeast Sinai region of Egypt.
The Pentagon says the soldiers were airlifted to a medical facility and are being treated for non-life-threatening injuries.
The mission of the Multinational Force and Observers is to support the 1979 peace treaty between Israel and Egypt.
The Pentagon says "the safety and security of U.S. forces remains our top priority." The department did not identify the wounded personnel.
