Egypt mosque attack claims over 200 lives

Egypt bombing Sinai

The Islamic State group's Egypt branch has killed hundreds of policemen and soldiers, and also civilians accused of working with the authorities, in attacks in the north of the Sinai peninsula, over the years.

"What is happening is an attempt to stop us from our efforts in the fight against terrorism, to destroy our efforts to stop the bad criminal plan that aims to destroy what is left of our region", Egypt's President Abdel Fattah el-Sisi said. Egypt's presidency declared three days of national mourning.

It is the first time a mosque is targeted by militants in Egypt.

The gunmen then mowed down panicked worshippers as they attempted to flee and used the congregants' vehicles they had set alight to block routes to the mosque. Officials said a midair explosion of a Russian jet in 2015 over the Sinai was the work of terrorists.

Dozens of bloodied bodies wrapped up in sheets were laid across the mosque floor, according to images circulating on social media.

India on Friday strongly condemned the terror attack at a mosque in Egypt that claimed at least 270 lives.

El-Sisi said that Egypt is facing terrorism alone, on behalf of the region and the whole world, and said that events in Sinai are "an attempt to break our will", and to end Egypt's efforts "to terminate the terrorist plan that is aiming to destroy what is left of the region".

"I am disgusted by the evil attack that killed & injured so many Egyptians in Sinai today".

Numerous attacks, some of which were carried out by the local branch of the Islamic State terrorist organization, are aimed at police and security forces in the Sinai Peninsula.

The Middle East News Agency said the bombing and shooting attack took place in the city of Arish, which is about 30 miles from the border with the Gaza Strip.

"The world can not tolerate terrorism, we must defeat them militarily and discredit the extremist ideology that forms the basis of their existence!" the president said. "God bless the people of Egypt". "India resolutely supports the fight against all forms of terrorism and stands with the people as well as Government of Egypt".
