The facade of the Tel Aviv-Yafo municipality building wore red, white, black and golden hues on Saturday night as it was lit up in solidarity with Egypt, which suffered a lethal terror attack on Friday. The municipality building, situated in Tel Aviv's Rabin Square, donned the colors of the Egyptian flag in an official expression of Israel's support of its southern neighbor, as Egypt continues to reel from the attack that claimed the lives of at least 29 Coptic Christians, including ten children. In the attack an estimated 10 masked perpetrators driving up in three SUVs stormed a bus outside of Cairo that was reportedly carrying a group of people en route to a monastery south of the Egyptian capital. The gunmen, who were dressed in military garb, demanded that the passengers recite the Muslim profession of faith and then opened fire, according to the Wall Street Journal.
Islamic State has since claimed responsibility for the attack on Saturday morning, according to the terror group's news agency, Aamaq, which also claimed that 32 perished in the assault on the bus.
