Islamic State terrorists ‘have beheaded three youths and kidnapped three others from the tribe of the Terabin, one of Sinai’s largest’ local sources said Tuesday.
The heads of the three victims ‘were found on the main road’, the sources added, without providing further details but attributing the crime to the so-called Islamic State ‘Daesh’ terror group.
A low-intensity conflict has been ongoing over the past six years, mainly in the north-east of the Egyptian peninsula,a between security forces and the Egyptian branch of ISIS with a high number of victims from both sides.
Local tribes are also targeted by terrorists when they cooperate with security forces, providing information. In 2015, ten men were beheaded and their murder was filmed. Earlier this month, 18 terrorists were killed in an operation carried out by Egyptian security forces in northern Sinai.
The killing took place two days after ten soldiers were ‘killed or wounded’ in a dynamite attack against a military vehicle near Bir al Abd, according to an official toll provided by military authorities.
