The Syrian Coalition condemned the terrorist attacks that targeted two churches in the cities of Alexandria and Tanta in Egypt on Sunday, resulting in dozens of casualties.
In a press release issued on Monday, the Coalition said that these crimes “once again reveal the ugliness of terrorist ideology and its sponsors, especially as they targeted places of worship and civilians in an act that expresses the brutality and criminality of terrorists and their accomplices.”
“On behalf of the Syrian people, the Coalition affirms it stands in solidarity with the Egyptian people with all its components in the face of these terrorist crimes.”
The Coalition extended condolences to the families of the victims as it wished the injured a speedy recovery.
At least 44 people were killed in Egypt in bomb attacks at the cathedral of the Coptic Pope in Tanta city and another church in Alexandria on Palm Sunday.
The Islamic State group claimed responsibility for the attacks, which also injured more than 100 people. (Source: Syrian Coalition’s Media Department)
