The Islamic Resistance Movement, Hamas has condemned the bombing of an Egyptian Coptic church in Cairo yesterday, which claimed the lives of many Egyptians.

The movement issued a statement soon following the bombing calling the attack “criminal.”

Hamas stressed that such attacks that target civilians aim at creating confusion and push all actors into a state of ‘mutual accusations.’

The movement noted that the attacks “only serve the enemies of Arab and Muslim nations.”

Hamas extended its condolences to the Egyptian people over the bombing and expressed its wishes for the situation in Egypt to stabilize soon.

The Egyptian state TV has said some 25 Egyptians were killed in the bombing, while dozens more were injured.

The relationship between Hamas and Egypt has seen a relative improvement recently following what is said to be an Egyptian anger with the Palestinian president Mahmoud Abbas. The latter is being chastised by Egypt for refusing an Egyptian proposal to reconcile with the former Fatah leader Mohammed Dahlan.
