A devastating terrorist attack has just taken place. A pair of bombs, thought to be detonated from cars, exploded overnight and caused mayhem and destruction to everything in the vicinity.
The attack happened in the famous city of Benghazi, Libya. So far, officials believe at least 33 people have been killed. At this time, another 47 individuals have been wounded and are being treated at local hospitals.
At this time, no specific terrorist group has claimed responsibility for the attack. However, experts believe the explosions are the work of ISIS.
Benghazi police said the attackers timed the second bomb to go off as residents and medics gathered to evacuate the wounded from the first blast, aiming to cause a maximum of casualties, according to reports.
“Many people were gathering and more people left the mosque when the second blast happened, and my brother died then,” said Khaled Almajdoub. “He has four daughters, no political or religious affiliation and was just a small business owner.”
Please join us in praying for all of those affected by this deadly explosion. We pray for God's grace to comfort them, and their families, as they try to process this tragic ordeal.
