The Daesh terrorist group has claimed responsibility for the attacks on churches in Egypt on Palm Sunday. The attacks left dozens of people dead.

On Sunday, an explosion hit a church in Tanta and another one a police station in the same city.

Later, a suicide bomber exploded near the entrance of Saint Mark’s church in the Egyptian city of Alexandria. The blasts killed over 40 people.

The attacks took place on Palm Sunday, a Christian feast commemorating the entry of Jesus Christ into Jerusalem. There were lots of people in both churches.

On December 11, a strong blast hit the Coptic Christian cathedral complex in Cairo, killing 25 and wounding 49 people. Daesh claimed responsibility for the attack.
