BEIRUT, LEBANON (11:55 P.M.) – The so-called “Islamic State of Iraq and Al-Sham” (ISIS) claimed responsibility for the suicide bombing at the Coptic cathedral on Sunday that killed as many as 25 civilians in Cairo, Egypt.

Using their official media wing (Al-‘Amaq), this international terrorist organization posted a message claiming responsibility for this heinous attack in Egypt’s capital city.

In response to this terrorist attack, the Egyptian Armed Forces have tightened the security around the city, while the army continues to battle the Islamic State militants in the Sinai Peninsula.

Sunday’s attack was the Islamic State’s second attack against Coptic Christians in North Africa and one of their many suicide bombings in Egypt since their emergence in the region.

Well, always equal to themselves : cowards. Some of them had a little courage a few weeks ago : they dared to attack Tsahal… Now they are feeding vultures… Frankly, how courageous they are to do a bombing in a church filled of women and children!
