While it is not the usual persecution Copts face, and it was not targeted to Copts, it entails a confession and martyrdom of a Coptic solider who found himself in the midst of a terrorist attack.
Among the 25 Egyptian army soldiers murdered yesterday in Rafah, Sinai by Hamas / Jihad / Gamaa Islameya, there was one Coptic soldier named Mina.
The 24 muslim soldiers were killed execution style with a bullet to the back of the head, after having their hands and feet tied. May God have mercy on their souls and give their families comfort.
The Coptic solider, Mina, was not shot in head. He was bled to death slowly for over 20 hours. Pray for us, Mina !
