It’s a lone wolf attack.
A new jihadist group calling itself the Brigades of Lone Wolves has announced its establishment and claimed responsibility for a number of attacks in Egypt in two recent statements. In its first statement, released on Dec. 27, the group denounced the Egyptian army for “killing Muslims and displacing them, detaining them, and violating their dignity and honor.”
“Defending the Muslims and protecting their honor is a duty, and it is not allowed for us to delay for that or slow down in executing it,” the statement said, according to a translation by the SITE Intelligence Group.
“Rush to the fields of the men, the fields of the heroes, before it is too late,” the group urged Muslim youth in Egypt.
In its second statement, released on Jan. 3, the Brigades of Lone Wolves claimed responsibility for five attacks and a kidnapping.
Do they all just individually do whatever they feel like during a terrorist attack?
