More than 200 were killed and dozens of other worshipers were wounded Friday in a bombing and shooting and bombing attack on a mosque in the northern Sinai town of Bir al-Abd, Egyptian officials said.

"These attacks on people praying in mosques and churches only strengthen our determination to stand together, & defeat terrorism & hate", Casson wrote on his Twitter.

The Sinai branch is one of Islamic State's surviving branches following the collapse of its self-declared caliphate in Syria and Iraq after military defeats by USA -backed forces.

They were teammates in Oklahoma City , but the two have not spoken since the summer of 2016 when Durant left for the Warriors . When Draymond Green was called for a foul shortly after that, the two really started jawing at each other.

President Abdel Fattah El-Sisi convened an emergency meeting of his security cabinet in Cairo in response to the attack. "India resolutely supports the fight against all forms of terrorism and stands with the people as well as Government of Egypt". "My honest condolences to all those affected and to the people of Egypt".

Israel strongly condemned the "painful terror attack in Egypt" and sent "the condolences of the Israeli people to [Egyptian] President [Abdel-Fattah] Sisi and to the Egyptian people", in a statement from Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's office. "The world can not tolerate terrorism, we must defeat them militarily and discredit the extremist ideology that forms the basis of their existence!" the POTUS tweeted. Our condolences & prayers are with the victims & their families.

The attack was the largest single targeting of Egyptian civilians and the first on a large mosque congregation since the IS affiliate began its campaign of violence against the state following the military's 2013 overthrow of an elected but divisive Islamist president.

Unidentified terrorist stormed Al-Rawda mosque early on Friday with explosives and heavy weaponry during the Friday prayers and opened fire on worshippers.

In a statement afterward, el-Sissi said the attack "will not go unpunished" and that Egypt will persevere with its war on terrorism. The attackers also fired upon the ambulances, eye witnesses claimed.
