|ANNOUNCEMENT FOR THE TERROR ATTACKS AGAINST COPTIC CHURCHES IN EGYPT|
|Thursday, 13 April 2017 11:57|
This time, the Islamic State has chosen Sunday, April 9, 2017, Palm Sunday, to strike the Egyptian Coptic Christians. At least 44 people were killed and more than 128 were injured in suicide bombers attack against two Coptic Orthodox churches during the mass. At least 27 people were killed and 78 injured in the first bombing attack that occurred on the St. George church in the Nile Delta city of Tanta, one hundred kilometers north of Cairo; the second attack, with 17 people dead and 48 wounded, occurred a few hours later on St. Mark’s cathedral in Alexandria.
Those two heinous attacks of brutal violence and terrorism, which even surpass the very limits of gruesome terrorist blindness, clearly targeted Egyptian Christians.
The Central Board of Jewish Communities in Greece condemns strongly and unequivocally these atrocious murderous acts, it stands by the side of all Christians and of all the people of Egypt and expresses its warmest condolences to the Patriarch of Alexandria and all Africa, His Beatitude Theodoros II, and to the families who lost their beloved ones in the Holy Week.
The Central Board of Jewish Communities in Greece hopes that this time the whole democratic Europe will not remain silent and indifferent towards the steady effort to exterminate and uproot Christianity from its cradle.
