Christians Killed in Deadly 2016 Church Bombings Get Justice as Egypt Sentences 17 Islamic Jihadists to Death and 19 Others to Life in Prison

Deadly violence against Christians has been on the rise in Egypt. Finally, evil jihadists who waged a bloody campaign against Christians in Egypt are being brought to justice.

We told you about horrific attacks in Egypt in the last few years that have resulted in the slaughter of innocent Christians:

Remember, . . . in December of 2016, that a “bomb ripped through a section reserved for women at Cairo’s main Coptic cathedral during Sunday morning Mass, killing at least 25 people and wounding 49, mostly women and children.”

And then, in April of 2017, ISIS “suicide” bombers carried out two attacks within hours of each other striking two Coptic churches on Palm Sunday. These attacks resulted in [at least] 44 deaths and 126 wounded, making it the deadliest attack on Coptic Christians in decades. Just one month later, in May, terrorists riding in three SUVs opened fire on a bus carrying Coptic Christians. They killed 28 and wounded 22 more.

These horrific examples are just some of the most deadly attacks, and we must all remember that much of the persecution against Egypt’s Christians does not make international headlines.

Now, we can report that at last there has been some justice for these innocent Christian victims.

A military court in Egypt just sentenced 17 Islamic radicals to death for their role in the cold-blooded massacre of these innocent Coptic Christians.

Seventeen Islamic militants were sentenced to death on Thursday for their role in multiple church bombings in Egypt that killed scores of Coptic Christians.

The Associated Press reported that another 19 defendants were issued life sentences by a military court, while nine others were given 15 years in prison for terror-related charges.

Several were found guilty of being involved in a suicide bombing at St. Mark’s Cathedral in Cairo in December 2016, where 25 people died. Others were found guilty of being involved in the twin suicide bombings in churches in Alexandria and Tanta on Palm Sunday in April 2017, where 45 were killed.
