The Egyptian military court in Alexandria sentenced، on Thursday، 17 people to death over a series of terror attacks on churches that left dozens dead، a judicial source says.

Another 19 people were handed life prison terms، while other 10 terrorists were sentenced to between 10 and 15 years، judicial and security officials say.

Seventy-five people were killed in the attacks in 2016 and 2017 in Cairo، Alexandria and the Nile Delta city of Tanta targeting Coptic Christians.

The Egyptian army is waging a major operation focused on the Sinai Peninsula aimed at wiping out the jihadists.
