One person was killed and at least four more were injured this evening (Tuesday) after terrorists opened fire towards the Saint Catherine’s Monastery in Sinai. It is still unclear who is responsible for the terror attack.

As reported last week by JOL, Egyptian President Abdel Fattah el-Sisi declared a state of emergency for three months following the horrific terror attack in the country, in which at least 45 Coptic Christians were murdered and dozens more were injured at two churches in Alexandria and Tanta.
