“This is the fate of all who prove to be traitors to their homeland,” the note said, Reuters reported.

The decapitated body was the just the latest one found by residents of the northern Sinai town of Sheikh Zuweid. Last month, residents found four decapitated bodies, and Egyptian officials said those murders were linked to Ansar Bayt al-Maqdis.
