White House condemns terror strike on Egypt mosque: ‘There can be no tolerance for barbaric groups’

The White House condemned the terrorist attack on a mosque in Egypt, sending condolences to the victims and pledging to stand with Egypt in the fight against Islamic terrorism.

“There can be no tolerance for barbaric groups that claim to act in the name of a faith but attack houses of worship and murder the innocent and defenseless while at prayer,” White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said in a statement.

The U.S. called on the international community to strengthen its efforts to defeat terrorist groups that threaten America and its partners throughout the world, including working to “discredit the extremist ideology that forms the basis of their existence,” Mrs. Sanders said.

President Trump was scheduled to speak later Friday with Egyptian President Abdel-Fattah el-Sissi.

Mr. Trump wrote on Twitter: “Will be calling the President of Egypt in a short while to discuss the tragic terrorist attack, with so much loss of life. We have to get TOUGHER AND SMARTER than ever before, and we will. Need the WALL, need the BAN! God bless the people of Egypt.”

The Islamic State-linked militants set off explosives and sprayed gunfire on worshipers at Friday prayer services at the mosque in the north Sinai town of Bir al-Abd, killing at least 200 people.
