Last night (Tuesday), ISIS took responsibility for the massive explosion that happened on Sunday in a Coptic cathedral in Cairo where 25 people were murdered. The terrorist organization threatened to attack Egypt again.

ISIS said it would continue to fight against “every infidel and apostate in Egypt, and everywhere.” They also identified the suicide bomber as Abu Abdallah al-Masri.

The number of Coptic Christians in Egypt stands at 10% of the population. It is still unknown if the explosion was specifically targeting the community.
