Dozens of people are reported to have been killed or injured following a bomb and gun attack during Friday prayers at a mosque in Egypt's Sinai peninsula.

North Sinai, which stretches from the Suez Canal eastwards to the Gaza Strip and Israel, has always been a security headache for Egyptian security forces because of smuggling.

Egyptian President Abdel-Fattah el-Sisi: The leader called it "criminal" and "cowardly" and expressed his condolences to the victims and their families, news agency AP reported. "We must collectively discredit the extremist ideology that forms the basis of their existence", White House spokeswoman Sarah Sanders said following the attack.

A bomb explosion ripped through the mosque before gunmen opened fire on the worshippers gathered for weekly Friday prayers, officials said.

Photos from inside the mosque showed what appeared to be bodies lined up in rows on the carpet.

It is the first time a mosque is targeted by militants in Egypt.

"Strongly condemn the barbaric terrorist attack on a place of worship in Egypt". The attackers also fired upon the ambulances, eye witnesses claimed.

President Donald Trump called it a "horrible and cowardly terrorist attack on innocent and defenseless" worshippers in Egypt and said terrorism and its ideology must be defeated.

Kuwaiti Emir Sheikh Sabah Al Ahmad Al Jaber Al Sabah stressed the Gulf state's support for Egypt, the security and stability of its people and all measures taken by the Egyptian government to face terrorism.

"The world can not tolerate terrorism, we must defeat them militarily and discredit the extremist ideology that forms the basis of their existence", he added.

There was no immediate claim of responsibility for the attack, but Egypt's security forces are battling an ISIL insurgency in north Sinai.
