It then proceeded to run the vehicle over, which contained four gunmen and 100kg of explosives, while civilians could be seen fleeing for cover.

However, the bomb exploded after the tank had driven away and seven civilians were caught in the blast, including two children.

An Egyptian army tank runs over an explosive laden vehicle in a move which thwarted an attack which could have claimed the lives of at-least 50 civilians and soldiers in a checkpoint in the restive Sinai Peninsula.

Panic stricken-civilians can be seen running for cover in the video footage.

Five killed, eight injured after building collapses in Mumbai's Ghatkpopar
The BMC's disaster management team received a call about the incident at around 10.43 am. Around 8 fire engines along with rescue vans and an ambulance were rushed to the spot.

The group, which routinely targets Egyptian security forces with bombings and drive-by shootings, claimed responsibility on Friday for an earlier attack on a three-car police convoy that killed one policeman and wounded three others in Fayoum governorate, southwest of Cairo.

The tank spotted the vehicle (circled) racing towards an army checkpoint in North Sinai and drove head-on to meet them. "The armed forces will continue to sacrifice all that is precious, our sons' lives, in order to preserve and protect this nation and its great people", said the spokesperson.

The extremists have threatened to carry out further attacks on Christians, who make up about 10 percent of Egypt's 90 million people.

This follows when the Egyptian military killed the divisive Islamist president Mohammed Morsi in 2013. Later, on July 14, gunmen reportedly ambushed an Egyptian security checkpoint killing five policemen in an area just south of the capital.
