Islamists bombed a military barracks in north Sinai tonight.
At least 25 soldiers were killed in the blasts.
Islamists already posted video where you can hear them scream, “Allahu Akbar!” as the bombs go off.
ISIS in the Sinai (IS Wilayat Sinai) took credit for the four attacks.
They claim 40 Egyptian soldiers were killed.

Twenty-seven people were killed in four attacks in Egypt’s North Sinai and Suez, security and medical sources said, in some of the worst anti-state violence in months and after commemorations around the anniversary of the 2011 uprising turned deadly this week.
Egypt’s government faces an Islamist insurgency based in Sinai and growing discontent with what critics perceive as heavy handed security tactics.
Thursday’s first attack was a bombing of military buildings in the capital of North Sinai province, that killed 25 and wounded at least 58, including 9 civilians, security and medical sources said.
The flagship government newspaper, al-Ahram, said its office in the town of Al-Arish, which is situated opposite a military hotel, headquarters and base that security sources said were the intended targets, had been “completely destroyed”.

But this is not Islamic extremism according to the Obama White House.
