The role of the Sisi regime in the attacks on churches

From Basim:  "In the four days since security forces cleared two sit-in camps by supporters of Egypt's ousted president, Islamists have attacked dozens of Coptic churches along with homes and businesses owned by the Christian minority. Nearly 40 churches have been looted and torched, while 23 others have been attacked and heavily damaged since Wednesday ... Christian activist, Ezzat Ibrahim of Minya, a province also south of Cairo where Christians make up around 35 percent of the population, said police have melted away from seven of the region's nine districts, leaving the extremists to act with near impunity."
So the police and army confront Islamists at all other times and in all parts of the country, but when they attack churches they "melt away?""
