Terrorists Target Churches Across Middle East

This past weekend, churches in Egypt and Nigeria were victims of great tragedy. In Egypt a suicide bomber killed 25 and injured at least 49 worshipers at St. Mark’s Coptic Orthodox Cathedral in Cairo, while a roof collapse at a Christian church in Uyo, Nigeria, left at least 23 dead.

Also this week in Israel in the News:

  • With the help of The Fellowship, the Israeli city of Haifa begins its recovery after the recent wildfires.
  • During an appearance on CBS’ 60 Minutes, Israeli PM Netanyahu laid out a plan for peace and improved relations with the U.S.
  • A ceasefire in the war-ravaged Syrian city of Aleppo was short-lived.

This week’s Israel in the News Perspective features The Fellowship‘s Senior Vice President Yael Eckstein on the horrific terrorist attack on a Christian church in Cairo.
