North Sinai Bedouin take multiple casualties from ISIS car bombs

Two car bombs exploded Tuesday evening in northern Sinai south of the divided town of Rafah, inflicting heavy casualties on members of the Tarabin Bedouin tribe. The attack was claimed by the Islamic State which is in feud with the tribe after a section broke away from its support for ISIS, which involved a share in the terrorist group’s smuggling operation and hiding its fugitives. Claiming responsible for the attack, ISIS accused the tribesmen of “spying and betrayal.”
