BEIRUT, LEBANON (2:35 P.M.) – The Islamic State (ISIL) suicide bombers that targeted the St. George Church in the Egyptian city of Tanta on Sunday had fought in Syria prior to committing yesterday’s terrorist attack.

The first suicide bomber, Abu Ishaq Al-Masri, was an Egyptian national that traveled to Turkey in late 2013 to fight alongside ISIL in northern Syria; he would later return to the Sinai Peninsula in 2014, Egyptian Ministry of Defense reported on Monday.

The second suicide bomber, Abu Al-Bara’a Al-Masri, was also an Egyptian national that traveled to Syria, via Lebanon, to jihad alongside one of the militant groups fighting the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) and their allies; he would return to Egypt in 2014, the Egyptian Ministry of Defense added.

ISIL paid tribute to these terrorists in a recent statement released on their official media wing.

If the Sissi was serious he would found a self-defence mlitia of the Coptic sect. These people are well organised and would be very much able to defend themselves if they had the means to do that.

Bury these mofos into pig skins and sow this on Youtube.
Churches should consider putting pig grease everywhere, maybe even mixing it in candles. Let have the mofos who blow themselves get haram-shrapnel. Once such practises are known, it will calm the suicide bombers. It has been used in the past and ended being an efficient deterrent!
