CAIRO – 24 September 2019: Six Muslim Brotherhood members were killed Tuesday in a gunfire exchange with the police in 6 October City, according to a police statement.
The police stormed their “hideout” where they had been preparing for a series of terrorist attacks in the country, including on churches, vital establishments, and military and police officers in the coming period to instigate chaos and fear amongst the public, the statement said.
In May, seven members of also Hasm, designated a terrorist organization in Egypt and the U.S., were killed in a police raid in 6 October City after intelligence that they made explosives in an apartment there.
In March, the police killed seven members of the Muslim Brotherhood-affiliated group Hasm in the same city on the outskirts of Cairo. Upon intelligence, the police set up an ambush to stop a truck the terrorists had been driving. Three gunmen, disguised as electricity maintenance workers, opened fire on the police as they approached the checkpoint.
Four others were killed in a fire exchange with the police as they raided their apartment in 6 October City on the same day. The police seized weapons and explosives in the flat.
In August, a car bomb outside Egypt’s National Cancer Institute killed 20 and injured at least 47. Investigations later revealed that the attack was perpetrated by the Muslim Brotherhood, and that Abdul Rahman Khaled, a member of the group, jumped out of the car before the blast and escaped, but was injured and left enough DNA evidence to identify him. Around 150 kilogram of TNT and other highly explosive materials were used for the attack.
