Location Where ISIS Slaughtered 21 Egyptian Christians And Dumped Their Remains Has Been Identified

Back in 2015, the world was shocked at the horrible story of ISIS beheading 21 Egyptian Christians for their faith in Christ. According to a recent report, the location- and the remains- of these martyred men have been found:

In a press conference held on Thursday 28 September Libyan General Prosecutor Al Sadiq al Sour reported that the place where the dead remains of the 21 Coptic Christians slaughtered by jihadists of the sedicent Islamic State ( Daesh) in 2015 has been identified.

According to the Prosecutor, the operations have already begun to dig in the area where the common pit is situated. The possible finding of what remains of the bodies of the victims is linked to the arrest of a man accused of taking part in that massacre claimed by jihadists with the spread of a macabre video that showed the stages of collective decapitation. Prosecutor Al-Sadiq al-Sour also indicated a beach adjacent to a hotel in the town of Sirte as the place where the massacre took place, and added that also the operator who filmed the scenes seen in the video has been identified.

The news of the possible finding of the 21 bodies quickly bounced back to Egypt, generating great emotion especially in the Coptic communities of the region of Minya, where most victims of the massacre came from. The family members of the victims immediately contacted the Egyptian Foreign Ministry for confirmation, and demanded that mortal remains of their martyrs, already celebrated as martyrs, soon return to the country to be buried at the churches and chapels that have already been named after them.

The 21 Egyptian Copts had been kidnapped in Libya in early January 2015. The video of their decapitation was shown on jihadist sites on February 15th. Just a week after their brutal act, Orthodox Catholic Patriarch Tawadros II decided to register the 21 martyrs in the Synaxarium, the book of martyrs of the Coptic Church, establishing that their memory was to be celebrated on February 15 . “The video depicting their execution – said after the massacre Anba Antonios Aziz Mina, Catholic Emeritus Bishop of Guizeh – had the intention of spreading terror. During their barbaric execution, the victims repeated ‘Lord Jesus Christ’. The name of Jesus was the last word on their lips. As in the passion of the first martyrs, they put their trust in Him who would soon receive them. And so they celebrated their victory, the victory that no executioner can take away from them”.

  • It took Stephen the Deacon courage and his martyrdom that planted the seed for Saul of Tarsus to be converted.

    Maybe the 21 Coptics’ courage causes a conversion of the man who was arrested in connection to their martyrdom.

    After all, for me personally, it was their martyrdom that caused me to investigate their doctrine and discover the Apostolic Faith. Couldn’t be happier being an Anglican, now.

      I hope that this will put an end to the squabbling between Catholics/Orthodox. May we never forget the Copts who died with the name of Jesus on their lips.

        God Himself will intervene to end the squabbling, by the coming of Antichrist. That which is false, the heretical and schismatic assemblies of the impious, will gravitate towards the son of Perdition and will apostasize to him. The true Catholic and Apostolic Church established by Jesus Christ will not, and will be savagely warred against by Antichrist. By these signs will we know the truth.

          The fusion will come in the fullness of God’s perfect timing. Patience, Patience, Patience…..

        Amen, Grand!

    Remember this story very well. No doubt, they have received their eternal reward. God Bless these Coptic Christians, who never compromised their souls for the devil.

    In Memory of the ISIS Slaughtered 21 Egyptian Christians.

    Revelation 15: 1-4 KJV
    15 And I saw another sign in heaven, great and marvellous, seven angels having the seven last plagues; for in them is filled up the wrath of God.

    2 And I saw as it were a sea of glass mingled with fire: and them that had gotten the victory over the beast, and over his image, and over his mark, and over the number of his name, stand on the sea of glass, having the harps of God.

    3 And they sing the song of Moses the servant of God, and the song of the Lamb, saying, Great and marvellous are thy works, Lord God Almighty; just and true are thy ways, thou King of saints.

    4 Who shall not fear thee, O Lord, and glorify thy name? for thou only art holy: for all nations shall come and worship before thee; for thy judgments are made manifest.

      Thank you so much, Dantes. I love this choir. Watching the beauty on their faces brought me to tears as I thought how our nation is so divided. Jesus knows his sheep and we listen for his voice. That’s what brings true unity.
