The terrorist attack at a Coptic church in Cairo on Sunday is a reminder that Egypt is also under attack by terrorists, Deputy Foreign Minister Tzipi Hotovely said on Sunday.

Hotovely, in the first Israeli response to the Palm Sunday attack, said that terrorism does not stop at Stockholm, St, Petersburg, Berlin, London and Jerusalem.

“Alongside the sadness and the mourning, we must unite forces with an iron fist against the Axis of Evil and terrorism,” she said. “Israel is a partner in the fight against terror everywhere it hits and will extend a hand in order to wipe it out.”
