A beheaded corpse was found by residents of Egypt’s Sinai Peninsula on Wednesday in what is believed to be an act of murder carried out by ISIS affiliated terrorists.
Found with the body was a note accusing the victim of being an Israeli spy
This is the eighth beheading that the ISIS linked terror group, Ansar Bayt al-Maqdis, claims to have carried out in under a month. ISIS has been condemned internationally for their brutal killings and is now the target of US air strikes in Iraq.
Residents from a village south of Shikh Zuweid in northern Sinai told reporters from Reuters that the note accused the dead man of being an agent for Israel’s Mossad spy agency and was signed by Ansar Bayt al-Maqdis.
“This is the fate of all who prove to be traitors to their homeland,” the note stated.
According to a report last week by Reuters, ISIS leadership has been advising the Sinai-based terror group on how to increase their effectiveness of carrying out terror attacks in the region.
It almost feels like “ISIS” is becoming more of a label than a group. Something like Anonymous – anyone can join up and start chopping off heads and leaving notes saying they are ISIS.
At the same time, it is a military organization with a structure of command and a supreme leader.
