In pics: Egypt arrests 16 MB members communicating with fugitives in Turkey

CAIRO – 10 September 2019: Sixteen terrorists affiliated with the outlawed Muslim Brotherhood group have been arrested by Egypt’s security forces on Sept. 10. The terrorists are facing accusations of being involved in illegal acts with fugitives in Turkey.

According to an official statement issued by the Ministry of Interior Affairs, the security forces were able to unveil a Muslim Brotherhood-plan aiming to destabilize the county’s security and stability along with targeting several vital facilities and buildings of the Interior Ministry, the Armed Forces and judiciary.

The plan also aimed at causing a state of chaos in the country which would allow the Muslim Brotherhood members to return to the forefront of the political scene in Egypt.


The communication between the outlawed group in Cairo and the fugitive members in Turkey were taking place on three different levels, according to the statement.

The three secret groups were aiming at smuggling foreign currency outside Egypt, smuggling unwanted and highly dangerous members of the brotherhood from Turkey to Europe and providing financial support to Muslim Brotherhood members in Egypt, allowing them to carry out violence acts in the country.


The statement also explained that some of the terrorist members in Egypt are working in the management of some of the private companies, only as a cover to hide their hostility and illegal acts.

The Muslim Brotherhood fugitive members were identified by Egyptian authorities as Yasser Mohamed Helmy, Mahmoud Hussien Ahmed, Ayman Ahmad Abdul Ghany and Medhat Ahmad Mahmoud.


Furthermore, an amount of smuggled funds of foreign currencies has been seized with the terrorists. This is in addition to a number of passports, documents and papers, which are considered evidence of their plan against Egypt.
