Kuwait authorities respond to a mosque attack.

ISIS terrorists sent out a tweet Friday laying claim to a suicide bombing that left an as-yet untold number of mosque-goers dead.

The Associated Press reported the attack was conducted by a terrorist wearing an explosive belt who was a member of the Najd Province, the same organization that’s bombed several Shiite mosques in Saudi Arabia in the last few weeks.

The terror assault in Kuwait hit the Imam Sadiq Mosque in the al-Sawabir neighborhood. Between two and 10 were killed, but the death toll is expected to rise.

“We couldn’t see anything so we went straight to the wounded and tried to carry them out,” said one witness, AP reported. “We left the dead.”

The bombing took place during Friday prayers, right in the middle of the Muslim holy season of Ramadan.

It also took place the same day as two other terrorist attacks went forth in France and in Tunisia, leaving numerous dead and wounded.
