International Christian Concern (ICC) have reported in just one month at least four violent incidents and two kidnappings have occurred against Egypt's Christian population.
The rise in attacks towards Christians compared to recent months, began days before the start of the Easter season and have continued through Islam's holy month of Ramadan.
ICC President Jeff King said: "This has been a difficult Easter season for Egypt's Christian population, and we are saddened by the violence against them.
"Though violence during these major holidays is unfortunately commonplace, ICC continues to monitor Egypt closely to determine if the country is moving toward long-lasting violence against the Coptic minority."
Several attacks have taken place before this including on April 7 when a Coptic Orthodox priest Arsanious Wadid was murdered after being stabbed several times by an assailant who suffered from mental health problems and was deemed mentally unstable and a previous member of radical groups in Egypt.
ICC said: "It is common for the attacker to be accused of having a mental illness rather than addressing underlying extremist motivations. This trend is not only a disservice to authentic religious freedom, but also increases the marginalization of those with genuine disabilities."
