The Libyan security forces have reportedly found the bodies of Coptic Christians from Egypt, killed by Daesh militants in Libya in 2015.

The bodies of more than twenty Egyptian Coptic Christians, executed by Daesh terrorists (a terrorist group that is banned in many countries, including Russia) in 2015 in Libya were discovered in the city of Sirte, the Egyptian newspaper al-Dustour writes, citing the statement of the Prosecutor General’s Office of Libya.

Libyan security forces reportedly detained the alleged perpetrators of this execution, who then revealed the location of their victims’ burial sites. The investigators checked the information and found the bodies of those 21 executed.

The Daesh group captured seven Egyptian Christians who worked in the Libyan city of Sirte in 2013. Then in early January 2015 they reported the capture of another 14 Egyptian Copts. In February 2015, terrorists distributed a video in which they showed the brutal execution of their captives.

Coptic Christians have been particularly targeted by Daesh in the course of instability in north-African countries. Since the beginning of December 2016, the terrorists have carried out several attacks on Egypt’s religious minority, which claimed lives of dozens of people.

It is not only the ISIS alone which massacred Christians. Nearly 60’000 Christians are killed a year and 100 Mio. Christians are persecuted around the world specially in muslim countries! What about Mohammed, the founder of islam? Ibn Ishaq wrote on page in his biography of Mohammed on page 464, that Mohammed gave the order to behead between 600-700 innocent jews of the tribe of Banu Quraiza. The women of the killed men became sexslaves. It is the ideology of the islam which are dangerous. This ideology make humans to brainwashed monsters.

A Muslim martyr is one who dies trying to kill non-Muslims. A Christian martyr is killed for belief in Jesus as Lord and Savior. Difference.
