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»

Egypt’s army said on Saturday it killed seven “takfiris” in north and central Sinai and arrested 408 suspected or wanted criminal elements as Comprehensive Operation Sinai 2018 continues into its ninth day. In the ninth communique since the counter-terrorism campaign was launched last Friday, the army said the air forces destroyed eight terrorist targets, killing three “takfiris” and destroying a 4x4 wheeler carrying a half-inch submachine gun. The Arabic word "takfiri" refers to hardline Sunni Muslims who accuse other Muslims of being infidels, often as a justification for using violence against them. The army said forces also raided a dangerous terrorist hotspot, killing four of the armed “takfiri” elements during a shootout, adding that the raid resulted in the confiscation of two machine guns and a improvised explosive device. The statement said 408 suspected or wanted criminals were arrested and are being legally processed. Operation Sinai 2018 was launched last Friday, involving land, naval and air forces, as well as the police and border guards, targeting "terrorist and criminal elements and organizations" in northern and central Sinai, as well as parts of the Nile Delta and the Western Desert. The statement said army engineers uncovered and diffused 45 IEDs which were planted to target security forces during operations. The army added that its forces destroyed 158 dens and storehouses containing a number of highly explosive materials, C4 and chemical elements used to manufacture IEDs, transmission devices, as well as seven vehicles and 32 unlicensed motorcycles used by the terrorist elements.Seven tonnes of narcotics were also seized in the operations. The statement added that the naval forces continued to conduct missions to secure the coasts from Rafah till Al-Arish in order to stop the escape of terrorist elements through the sea. The joint combat units of the border guard and the police conducted 586 flying checkpoints on main roads and across desert areas nationwide, imposing full control along the southern and western borders. According to the statement, Border Guard forces stopped an attempt to smuggle weapons and narcotics on the western borders, seizing 99 guns and 400,000 different narcotic pills. As part of the efforts to bring the legal status of citizens who live in north and central Sinai up to date, the army said the interior ministry was currently issuing and renewing national IDs, as well as driving licenses and licenses for vehicles and motorcycles.

Egypt's Minister of Health Ahmed Radi launched on Tuesday a national campaign to end Virus C by 2020 that begins in 17 governorates as part of President Abdel-Fattah al-Sisi’s initiative to announce an Egypt free of the disease. The campaign will be carried out with “Tahya Masr” (Long Live Egypt) Fund and Al-Azhar. The official spokesperson for the Ministry of Health Khaled Megahed, announced that the first stage of the campaign will target 17 governorates in Egypt: Cairo, Fayoum, Beni Suef, El-Menyia, Sohag, Giza, Qena, Luxor, Aswan, The Red Sea, Gharbyia, Monoufyia, Sharkyia, Dakahlyia, Assiut, Port Said and Damietta. The next stages will take place in the rest of Egypt. Megahed announced that the campaign will include health scans of members of the public through conducting PCR tests to check for antibodies for virus C. Those proven positive will then be further tested for virus C and will be given a cure on the same day. Megahed added that the campaign targets people between the ages of 19-59, which is the same group that the World Bank announced to be the most vulnerable to the disease. The World Bank had announced that there are around 50 million citizens who suffer from Virus C in Egypt. The campaign will target 15 million citizens annually over three years. Megahed also said that Egypt will be free of Virus C by 2020, stressing on the importance of the campaign being carried out on a huge range of people to truly make it a national campaign. During the last presidential opening of new projects in Beni Suef, the Minister of Health had announced to the president that the ministry has finished checking five million citizens for Virus C in one year. Hepatitis Virus C is a major public health burden in Egypt as the country has the highest infection rates in the world. There is an estimated 71 million people who have the disease worldwide, and 50 million of them are in Egypt. The epidemic hit Egypt in the 1950s as a result of a national program of massive vaccinations with non-strylized syringes. Egypt has attempted in recent years to fight Virus C, most notably the “Tour n’ Cure” campaign which was promoted by Lionel Messi, and invited people to come and spend a vacation and be cured by the virus in Egypt. Moreover, in 2016 the US Food and Drug Administration announced a new Egyptian drug Zepatier had been approved to treat specific types of Virus C in adult patients. More»
