Egypt Launches Airstrikes in Libya After Christians Murdered

Post by Thorin on Sat May 27, 2017 6:46 am

Egypt has launched airstrikes in Libya after militants targeted Coptic Christians in a terror attack earlier Friday, murdering 28 people and injured scores more. In a televised address, Egyptian President Abdul Fattah al-Sisi said the strikes targeted “terrorists training camps,” adding the country would “not hesitate to strike terrorist camps anywhere.” Coptic Christians have come under attack recently in the region, mostly at the hands of ISIS terrorists.

Crying or Very sad

More ISIS barbarity...


An unrelated side topic :
Over here, the Egyptian Coptic Christian church has a community down in Sydney...

That branch of their church bought an old former/disused Presbyterian church in an old mining village near here, a couple of decades ago..

My family's interest in that site comes from my late maternal grandfather having lived next door to the church, where his house had originally been the minister's manse.
