The Algemeiner reports: Egyptian President Abdel Fattah el-Sisi pledged to use “brute force against that small band of extremist terrorists” following a bomb and gun attack on a mosque in the Northern Sinai region on Friday which left 235 worshipers dead and over 100 injured.
“The Armed Forces and the police will avenge our martyrs and restore security and stability in full force in the next period,” el-Sisi declared in a live televised address after the earlier assault during Friday prayers at the al-Rawda mosque in the town of Bir al-Abed.
“All that is happening is an attempt to stop our efforts in our fight against terror and an attempt to break our will in ending the terrible criminal scheme that aims to destroy what remains of the region,” el-Sisi said. Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu strongly condemned the “painful terror attack in Egypt.”
