Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's office released a statement Sunday extending Israel's condolences to Egypt and the victims of a deadly blast at a Coptic church in the Nile Delta town of Tanta.

"The world must unite and fight against terrorism everywhere," read the statement. More than 25 people were reportedly killed in the blast hours before a second explosion hit a Coptic church in the city of Alexandria.
