Earlier, on October 29, Mujahideen conducted a large-scale martyrdom operation against a church in Baghdad, subordinated to the Vatican. The battle lasted for 5 hours. U.S. military aircraft took part in it.

When the battle was coming to an end, the Mujahideen pretended to be dead and blew up with them enemy soldiers who approached them. More than 60 elite enemy soldiers, and more than 40 ordinary Shiite policemen were killed in that operation.

On their part, puppet Shiite commandos killed at least 40 Christians during their attack on the Catholic church occupied by the Mujahideen.

The government of the ISI [Islamic State of Iraq, mujahideen] demand from the Vatican to order the head of Coptic Christians in Egypt, Patriarch Shenouda III, to release from his monastery prison 2 Muslim women, Wafaa Constantine and Camilia Shehata, and many other sisters who embraced Islam and are now subject to brutal tortures by the monks to force them to renounce Islam.

The government of the ISI issued an ultimatum to the Vatican on November 1, stating that if Muslim women are not released from the monastery prison within 48 hours, which is “very easy” to do for Shenouda, then the ISI will begin to attack Christian churches “not only in Iraq but also in Egypt, Syria and other countries in the region”, “regardless of their denominations (confessions)”.

“You have hundreds of thousands of supporters and hundreds of churches, and they will all be our targets, if you do not answer, and may peace be upon those who follow the guidance”, the statement by the Ministry of Information of the Islamic State of Iraq said in conclusion.

The ultimatum expired on November 3. Muslim women are still in the torture monastery Ain Shams of Coptic Christians in Egypt.
