The Egyptian Ministry of Interior said on Wednesday that six members of the banned Muslim Brotherhood have been arrested at a ranch in Beheira governorate owned by detained politician and former presidential candidate Abdel-Moneim Abul-Futouh. The ministry said in a statement on Wednesday that the suspects, who were wanted in several terrorism-related cases, were found in possession of two rifles. Security forces are still searching for two other Brotherhood members who gave refuge to the six fugitives at the ranch on Abul-Fotouh’s orders, according to the statement. Abul-Fotouh, who is also the head of the Strong Egypt Party, was arrested last week for plotting with members of the Brotherhood to destabilise the country ahead of the upcoming presidential elections. On Tuesday, a Cairo criminal court placed Abul-Fotouh on the terrorism list for his connection to the Muslim Brotherhood, which was designated a terrorist group in 2013. Abul-Fotouh was arrested at his home in New Cairo hours after he returned from a visit to London, where he gave an interview to the Qatari-based Al-Jazeera channel criticising government policies. The interior ministry says Abul-Fotouh held secret meetings with leaders of the international Muslim Brotherhood organisation in London earlier this month to carry out a plot to spark unrest and instability in the country. Shortly after his arrest, the High State Security Prosecution ordered Abul-Fotouh’s detention for 15 days pending investigations into charges including "publishing and broadcasting false news that harms national interests" and leading an illegal group that aims to topple the regime and disrupt public order.

Egyptian authorities will open the Rafah border crossing with Palestine’s Gaza Strip in both directions for four days starting Wednesday for humanitarian purposes and to allow stranded Palestinians to return to the Strip, Egypt's state news agency MENA reported. The Rafah border crossing is the main gateway to the outside world for 1.8 million Palestinians living in Israeli-besieged Gaza, and is the only crossing point not controlled by Israel. This will be the second time Egypt has opened the crossing in two weeks. The crossing was opened on 7 February for three days after an almost two-month closure. Egypt has mostly kept the border closed over the past few years due to security concerns following the ouster of Islamist president Mohamed Morsi in 2013. The Egyptian government opens the crossing periodically for humanitarian purposes. Gaza, a small, impoverished coastal enclave, has been under Israeli blockade since 2006. Palestinian rivals Hamas and Fatah agreed to hand over control of the Rafah crossing on the Palestinian side to a unity government as part of an Egyptian-brokered reconciliation deal in October 2017.

Four “takfiris” were killed by the Egyptian Armed Forces in northern and central Sinai, the army said in a statement on Monday, as comprehensive Operation Sinai 2018 enters its second week. The term “takfiri” refers to Sunni Muslims who accuse other Muslims of being infidels, often as a justification for using violence against them. Military spokesman Tamer El-Rifai said that one non-commissioned officer and two soldiers were killed, while another two other officers were injured. Forces also arrested 417 wanted criminal elements and destroyed 27 vehicles, four hideouts and 224 weapons caches. Army engineers also uncovered and diffused 101 IEDs, which were planted to target security forces during operations, the army said. Law enforcement forces also released a number of suspects after ascertaining their non-involvement in any open investigation cases or violence. El-Rifai’s statement is the 10th military communiqué on the sweeping counter-terrorism operation since it began on 9 February. Since the beginning of the operation, a total of 65 takfiris have been killed and hundreds of criminal suspects have been arrested, according to military statements. Land, sea and air forces have carried out security patrols to combat attempts to smuggle arms or infiltrate Egypt's southern and western borders, El-Rifai added. Forces involved in the operation have also located a number of farms used to grow illegal narcotics and seized large amounts of drugs and communication facilities, he said. Operation Sinai 2018 was launched on Friday, 9 February involving land, naval and air forces, as well as the police and border guards. The operation targets "terrorist and criminal elements and organizations" in northern and central Sinai, as well as parts of the Nile Delta and the Western Desert. More»

Official spokesperson of the Armed Forces Tamer al-Refeai stated on Saturday that Egypt’s Air Force destroyed 8 terrorist targets and 158 weapon depots on the ninth day of the ongoing military operation “Sinai 2018” to eliminate terrorism in the troubled Sinai peninsula. Meanwhile, President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi held a meeting with Prime Minister Sherif Ismail, Minister of Defense, Minister of Interior, Acting Chief of the General Intelligence Service (GIS) during which they discussed the developments of the comprehensive military operation. Sisi praised the Armed Forces and police’s efforts to protect the nation, asking them to accomplish the operation’s goals and secure civilians in the operation areas. Meanwhile, al-Qaeda leader Ayman al-Zawahiri called through a voice recording on Saturday on armed groups operating in the Sinai to take up arms against the state. Security experts said that Zawahiri’s call will not be effective as terrorist groups have become increasingly decimated in the area. In response to the increasing terrorist threat in North Sinai, the ‘Comprehensive Operation Sinai 2018’ was launched last Friday by different branches of the army, including the Second and Third Field Armies located in Sinai. Since 2014, North Sinai has witnessed a growing number of terrorist attacks carried out by IS and its affiliated group the Sinai Province, including various attacks against the army and the police. North Sinai-based state security has carried out large-scale security sweeps and military operations in response. More»

Egypt’s Military Prosecution approved a request that Hisham Geneina, former top auditor and a member of former presidential hopeful Sami Anan’s campaign team, be referred to a prison hospital to receive proper medical treatment. Ali Taha, Geneina’s lawyer, said on Friday that his client was undergoing treatment before his arrest in order to undergo a medical operation in the skull and eye after he was assaulted last month. During the attack he suffered a fracture of the left eye and needs four plates to be installed in the skull bone to repair the eye socket floor. Egypt’s military prosecution ordered on Wednesday that Geneina be detained for 15 days pending investigations over statements he made about allegedly possessing sensitive and top- secret documents incriminating senior military figures. Geneina was arrested on Tuesday after he told HuffPost Arabia that he has access to top-secret documents which allegedly prove that army leaders played a role in causing social unrest following the 2011 uprising which saw the ousting of former President Hosni Mubarak. Geneina threatened to release these documents if Anan, who is currently under arrest, is subject to a threat against his life. Geneina was reportedly attacked and beaten by unidentified men in New Cairo, causing several injuries to his face and legs. The attack on Genena came after he was appointed by Anan as his vice president running mate. The military prosecution now holds both Geneina and Anan, while Anan’s presidential campaign said it suspended all its activities. More»
