The Coptic Christian minority in Egypt has long been the target of militant extremist groups in the country. The surge of killings against Christians in the Sinai region following el-Sissi’s coup has been a powerful backlash against the Coptic community’s support for el-Sissi. As horrific as this most recent killing is, perhaps the most concerning part of this article is that Egyptian soldiers only felt safe reporting this anonymously to the press as they had been ordered not to. With the media relying on piecemeal information provided by soldiers who have been ordered not to contact them, there is no telling exactly how far violence has or will spread in the region.
