Hamas condemned the recent bombing in Alexandria, Egypt, assigning the blame to "hidden hands that do not wish well for Egypt and its people and seek to inflame sectarian strife".
"We learned with deep sorrow news of the Alexandria church bombing that killed more than twenty Muslim and Christian Egyptian citizens," Hamas said in a statement Saturday.
"We point the finger at parties who do not wish well for Egypt and its Muslim and Christian people, and seek to ignite sectarian strife, which we ask Allah to spare the people from," the group stated.
Hamas in its statement sent condolences to Egypt and the victims' families, and hoped that facts would be disclosed the soonest and that those responsible would be brought to justice.
