The Egyptian Organization for Human Rights (EOHR) denounces shooting police officers in one of the search points in front of Alexandria Bank, at the street leads to the sea, in Aresh City, North Sinai Governorate, on June 22, 2011. Two of the police officers died, Mohamed Ibrahim and Mohamed Hassan, and two were injured in the incident. The gunfire was launched by 4 armed men mounted on motorcycles and a 4×4 car.

Aresh Governorate has witnessed many similar gunfire incidents in the last few months like launching gunfire toward the central security camp and the Egyptian gas line explosions. Many sources of EOHR stated that many people in the governorate were kidnapped and the kidnapers called for high ransoms to release them. EOHR stresses on the necessity of cooperation between the police and the armed forces in order to overstep all these negative practices in the Egyptian streets.

Hafez Abu Seada, the head of EOHR also emphasized on the necessity of having decisive procedures against those who violate laws and taking those perpetrators to accountability, according to the international standards of fair trial.
