The Presidential Council of the UN-backed Government of National Accord (GNA) has condemned in the strongest terms the two terror attacks that struck a church in Tanta and another in Alexandria, Egypt.

The Presidential Council offered heart-felt condolences in a statement on Sunday to the President of Egypt, Abdel Fattah Al-Sisi, the Egyptian people and the families of the lost ones, who were brutally murdered while performing Palm Sunday prayers before Easter.

“This crime goes against the teachings of Islam and other religions, as well as the human race as a whole.” The statement says.

The statement also added that the Libyan people know well how terrorism is dangerous to the country and the people alike as it would never differentiate between humans or religions but rather would always kill innocent people from all religions and backgrounds because it only knows destruction.
