Al Qaeda Cell Claims It Was behind Suicide Bombing in Sinai

The “Champions of Jerusalem” Al Qaeda-linked terrorist cell, which calls itself Ansar Beit al-Maqdis, has claimed it was behind Tuesday’s deadly suicide bombing of the police headquarters in the northern Sinai city of Mansoura.

A statement by the terrorist group asserted that the attack, which killed at least 15 people, was in retaliation for Egypt’s campaign to jail Muslim Brotherhood officials following their ouster this past summer.

Hamas denied it was involved in the suicide bombing,

The Egyptian army said on Wednesday that it foiled plans by Hamas terrorists to attack another site in the northern Sinai. Egypt’s military spokesman Colonel Ahmed Ali said in a statement that the army arrested “a Palestinian belonging to Hamas who illegally entered Egypt… in a car with North Sinai license plate.”

The suspect admitted he intended to blow up his car in front of a security building.
