ISIS has claimed responsibility for the gruesome church bombings in Egypt, which have left at least 36 people dead, and many more injured.

Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS/ISIL) has claimed responsibility for two Egyptian church bombings, Reuters reports, citing Amaq news agency, which is affiliated with the terrorist group.

The terrorist organization said that an IS-affiliated group was responsible for the attacks in Tanta and Alexandria.

First, there was a huge blast in the Coptic church in Tanta, with at least 25 killed and another 78 wounded in the explosion, according to the country’s health ministry.

The bomb was placed in the prayer hall. A second attack was mere hours later, leaving 11 dead and 40 injured at the Coptic Christian Cathedral, in Alexandria.

These attacks have been carried out on Palm Sunday, when Jesus was welcomed in Jerusalem. I do not think this is coincidence.
