( An Islamic State-linked terror group in Egypt’s Sinai Peninsula has decapitated 10 men whom the terror group accused of spying for Israel and Egypt.

In a video posted online by Wilayat Sinai (Province of Sinai), which was formerly known as Ansar Bayt al-Maqdis, the jihadists forced the men to confess on camera that they are spies of the Israeli Mossad and the Egyptian military, and then decapitated them and dumped their bodies on a road in the northern Sinai, the Jerusalem Post reported. 

Egyptian President Abdel Fattah El-Sisi has waged a massive campaign to destroy terror groups in the Sinai Peninsula. Meanwhile, Russian President Vladimir Putin visited Egypt on Tuesday, meeting with El-Sisi. Putin—who received an “extravagant” welcome, according to Egyptian media—signed an agreement with Egypt to construct a nuclear power plant.
