Egyptian Armed forces to restore bombed churches

Thu, Apr. 13, 2017
CAIRO–April 13, 2017: The Egyptian Armed Forces will undertake the restoration of Mar Girgis Church in Tanta and Alexandria’s Coptic Orthodox Church, following directives from Egyptian President Abdel Fatah al-Sisi, the official Facebook page of the Armed Forces, announced Thursday.

Minister of Defense and Commander-in-Chief of the Egyptian Armed Forces Sedki Sobhi on Thursday issued orders to restore the churches so they can reopen to churchgoers in a short time.

“The Armed Forces and the police will remain at the forefront with state institutions to confront terrorism,” Sobhi said in a meeting with a number of commanders and officers of the Armed Forces.

At least 45 people were killed and hundreds injured during attacks on the two churches Sunday.
