Unknown gunmen shot dead in El-Arish in the northeast Sinai Peninsula, a Coptic Christian who worked in the local school. The teacher was heading home from work.
According to witnesses, two men drove up on a motorcycle to the 50-year-old Gamal Tawfik and killed him with shots to the head, and then disappeared. No group has yet claimed responsibility for the attack, but it is assumed that the killers – the militants of the «Islamic state».
Taufik was the second Christian to be killed in El-Arish in recent days. On February 11, the terrorists shot dead a local vet Bahgat Zakir, also a representative of the Coptic community.
In late January, was shot by a merchant-COPT Wael Milad. Jihadists, outraged by the fact that it sells alcohol, defeated him at the store.
