ISIS-Affiliated Muslims Slaughter At Least 235 In Egyptian Mosque Attack

At least 200 were killed in a bomb attack an Egyptian mosque in the Sinai peninsula. An ISIS-affiliated group is behind the attack.

Egypt’s military has begun conducting airstrikes around the area, security sources and eyewitnesses said. The strikes have been concentrated in several mountainous areas surrounding Al-Rawdah mosque where militants are believed to be hiding out, the security sources said.

Haaretz reports: MENA, a state news agency, reported that ISIS-affiliated militants are suspected of perpetrating the attack, which targeted a mosque frequented by Sufis, members of Islam’s mystical movement, in the north Sinai town of Bir al-Abd. Islamic militants, including the local ISIS branch, consider Sufis heretics because of their less literal interpretations of the faith.
