305 Counted Among The Deceased Following Egyptian Mosque Shooting
Yesterday, the heartbreaking-yet-sadly-predictable news broke that yet ANOTHER mass shooting terrorist attack had popped off in the north Sinai region of Egypt.
According to USAToday, the death toll has risen to 305. It is reported that “dozens” of militant extremists waving Islmaic State flags opened fire in the mosque killing 27 children among their hundreds of victims.
Witnesses to the attack say that a bomb was detonated near the end of the prayers and then gunfire erupted as the shooters had blocked all the exits from the building.
This act of terrorism serves as the very first major attack on a congregation of Muslims in Egypt.
Like we mentioned before, even as 2017 comes to a close, it was disturbingly predictable that something like this was likely to happen in the few short days before the ball drops.
R.I.P. to those who lost their lives. Hell awaits for their killers.
