An attack on South Korean tourists in Taba does not come as good news for Hamas. Ansar Bayt al-Maqdis, the group responsible for the attack, has been operating for years in the Sinai Peninsula. It has the support of the local Bedouin population, and currently enjoys direct aid from some of the Hamas military chiefs in Gaza.
