In a new video purportedly released by the Islamic State, ISIS militants in “Wilayat Sayna,” Egypt are shown participating in military exercises for acts of terrorism. The video was released on March 31, 2016 and it is titled “Preparation of the Defiant to Defeat the Tyrant.”
ISIS has recently increased violence against Egyptian service members in the region, with a photo report released on January 29, 2016 showing a police officer from the Sheikh Zuweid police department being executed in the street. The violence is having a major impact on Egypt’s tourism industry, with The Jerusalem Post reporting that the amount of visitors has dropped 41% since last year.
This latest video shows that ISIS continues to grow troops in the region.
