Christian mother sacrifices life to save two daughters from terrorist attack

CAIRO, Egypt, January 2, 2018 (LifeSiteNews) – A brave Coptic mother sacrificed her life to save her two daughters during the December 29 terrorist attack targeting Christians at a church in Cairo.

Nermin Sadik, 32, pushed her daughters, Nesma, 11, and Karin, 7, away when she saw the gunman at Saint Mina Coptic Church. Sadik then fell to the ground.

“After falling, the terrorist looked angrily at a necklace on my mother’s neck and then took out a weapon and fired several bullets at us,” Sadik’s elder daughter Nesma, said. “One of them hit my mother.”

Nesma said that the terrorist tried to kill her and her sister, but as the girls’ mother died, she held her daughters in her arms to protect them from the gunfire.
