CAIRO, Nov.27,2017-- The terrorists in Egypt, particularly in North Sinai, seek to prove their strong existence by expanding terror attack targets to vast Muslims, said Egyptian political experts.
 
At noon on Friday, when Muslims gathered at mosques for massive weekly prayers, a bomb and gunfire attack against a mosque in a small village in North Sinai killed at least 305 worshippers, including children, and injured over 100 others.
 
The attack is the first against Muslim worshippers at a mosque in Egypt and the deadliest in the country's modern history.
 
Although no group has yet claimed responsibility for the attack, it is widely expected to have been carried out by a group self-styled as "Sinai State" or "Sinai Province," a Sinai-based group affiliated with the Islamic State (IS) regional terrorist group, which claimed responsibility for the largest terrorist operations in the country over the past few years.
