Intelligence indicates that General Abdel Fattah al-Sisi is targeted by Al-Gama’a al-Islamiyya terrorists
Elite forces are securing General Abdel Fattah al-Sisi after indications of several different plots to assassin him have been detected by both The Egyptian State Security Investigations Service (SSI) and by foreign intelligence service of another Arab country that has friendly relations with the Egyptian military intelligence. The information is pointing at members of groups of the Islamic brotherhood members is the cities of Ismailia and Alexandria. All local security service had been paying close attention to Al-Gama’a al-Islamiyya members all through the years as the organization posed a consistent threat to former regime. The organization that was illegal had managed to survive and prosper through the years, gaining power in most areas in the country. The terrorist organization had many non militant activities in the realm of religious services and social activism within poor uneducated populations across the lend.
The Al-Gama’a al-Islamiyya consists of main organization with a large number of peripheral local terrorist cells that are connected somewhat to the main leadership but has their own agenda and ability to execute terror acts without involving the main organization. This structure, very similar to the global Jihad model of Al-Qaeda is making it hard for intelligence services to intercept terror acts before being carried out. Nevertheless, security forces take advantage of the current situation, trying to penetrate these cells in very clever ways which have always been the special souce of the very well trained and experienced humint (Human intelligence ) officers of the Egyptian security forces.
It is now confirmed the Mohammed Badie, the main leader of the Islamic brotherhood, was arrested today by the Egyptian army. It is also reported that the army is making “preemptive arrests” all over Egypt, arresting many leaders in the Gama’a al-Islamiyya. Badie second in command , Khairat el-Shater , was arrested too. Badie predecessor arrested as well and so is his son.
