That bombing was claimed by Ansar Beit al-Maqdis, the most active militant group in Egypt. It attempted to kill the interior minister in Cairo in 2013 in a car bomb attack. They have not (yet?) formally pledged its support to IS. The incident happened in the north far away from Sukhari (not that it diminishes in anyway my sympathy and condoleances to their immediate families as well as the Egyptian people). Western diplomats briefed on intelligence reports have said privately for weeks that the level of antigovernment violence in northern Sinai was rising again, despite the contrary claims of Egyptian officials. Attacks by militants in Sinai have killed hundreds of soldiers and police officers since last year’s takeover, and including Friday’s attacks the militants have killed more than 40 this week alone, according to the Egyptian state media. Militants have also continued to set off bombs periodically in Cairo. An explosion this week near Cairo University wounded at least 11 people — six of them security officers. A bomb outside the Foreign Ministry late last month killed two police officers.

Well said chaps!
As said by our other friends Siko my condolences to the Egyptian people and especially to the families of the soldiers you mention! I am sure the Egyptian people are glad they kicked out Morsi and at least they have some more capable people in charge now to deal with the extremists! Tibbs
Very sorry to hear that news about the innocent soldiers, who were performing their civic duties, I feel for the families. We in Europe regard egypt as a strong country with an inate sense of justice- the people of Egypt are decent and strong- you will not be beaten by these so called religious fighters. MrH
This is so sad for the innocent people involved. There are far too many people in the world who want to impose their ideology on to others and don't care how much suffering they cause to do it. They are just thugs and terrorists and care nothing for ordinary people struggling to make a living. I hope the Egyptian government can undermine and eradicate them both politically and militarily. Its a pity these events don't get more coverage in the western press!
VERY SAD ! HAMAS ! they have been there for a number of years , and morsi did not do any good when he awarded Egyptian citizen ship to many thousands , later revoked by sisi , isis and the state, want the instability through out the middle east , to bring a religious war ? this in Egypt is a mistake , this country will not accept this , they will get there asses kicked in the days/weeks to come , sad sad day , feeling for the families , big time , I hope I never knew any of them . I will find out in the days to come ? my thought's and my prayers go out to all the families of the dead .
