Nov 24, 2017 – Egypt Mosque Suicide Attack Death Toll Hits 54

Not less than 50 people were killed today when suspected militants bombed and opened fire at a mosque in Egypt’s restive northern Sinai on Friday, state media said.

Eyewitnesses reported ambulances ferrying casualties from the scene to nearby hospitals after the attack on Al Rawdah mosque in Bir al-Abed, west of Arish city. 

Another 75 people were wounded, MENA reported.

President Abdel-Fattah al Sisi convened an emergency security meeting soon after the attack, state television reported.

Egypt’s security forces are battling an Islamic State insurgency in north Sinai, where militants have killed hundreds of police and soldiers since fighting there intensified over the last three years.

Militants have mostly targeted security forces in their attacks, but have also tried to expand beyond the peninsula by hitting Egyptian Christian churches and pilgrims.

  1. CHILDREN OF EVIL HAS DONE IT AGAIN..NOW THEY ARE EVEN KILLING THEMSELVES MORE THAN EVER.OUR GOD CANNOT BE MOCKED

  2. Drastic problems call for drastic solutions. It’s time security gadgets were installed in places of worship and manual checks carried out on worshippers as a matter of course.the great danger posed by these heartless people is too much. Mchweeew!

  3. Some people still think these fuckers are islamic?. Iron bar, are these idiots islamic to you?. Number of dead in terrorist massacre of mosque goers in Egypt up to 260, making it the most fatal terrorist attack in Egyptian history. Gunmen were waiting outside shooting people who escaped the blast.

    Still, there are many who see fit to put these 260 innocent people on trial for their own murder! chai, Mr. Iron Bar, can you reason for a second?. That is what we imply when we call their murder “Islamic,” a point I am about to make to you guys.

    Any logical person will wonder how these “Islamic” terrorists can possibly care for the sanctity of Islam or Muslims, the house of God, or God himself, let alone the sanctity of innocent life while still being rewarded the label “Islamic.”

    No, these terrorists are NOT “Islamic.” Nor are the ones who strike in France, the US or anywhere else. Terrorsm is NOT “Islamic”; Trump and the GOP are morons for insisting otherwise.

    أَرَأَيْتَ الَّذِي يَنْهَى عَبْدًا إِذَا صَلَّى

    This is the 9th verse of the first revealed chapter of the Qur’an.

    The Quran warns, in this very first surah, “those who force a worshipper against his prayers”, so imagine killing worshippers in their prayers. This is not some little bit of detail buried in an opinion on some weak Hadith or a modern injunction in some tertiary fiqh book… These are the first ayahs of the first surah of the Qur’an. The first of the first of the most primary text of a Muslim.

    No excuse for confusion or misinterpretation or difference of opinion,…
    These folks simply cannot claim Islam. And if they do, why should we concede? It is like claiming to be a scientist while insisting that the world is flat. You can claim it but who would concede?

  4. Anytime terrorist attached church accusing fingers always point at Muslim but WHEN they attack mosque they stll point accusing finger at Muslim.. CHRISTIAN terrorist on RAMPAGE.
