CAIRO - 23 June 2017: Police officers killed a “terrorist” during a gunfight and chase on Oasis road in Giza on Friday, the Ministry of Interior announced in a statement.
An investigation is currently being carried out, the statement added, noting that the “terrorist” was a member in the so-called armed Islamist group, the Hasam Movement.
The National Security Department received information that a wanted terrorist was likely going to be travelling down Oasis road, so police prepared an ambush at al Mizan checkpoint.
The suspect attempted to flee by a car; however, he was chased down by the police. The suspect’s body was taken to October Hospital for autopsy.
Among the police’s efforts to combat terrorism, three people affiliated with the so-called armed Islamist group, the Hasam Movement, were killed in a gunfight with the police in Alexandria, the Ministry of Interior announced on Tuesday.
