Egypt Giza Attack: Authorities investigating incident that left five police officers…

first_imgEgypt is still investigating Friday’s attack in Giza just south of Cairo. Gunmen targeted a police vehicle and killed five officers. While analysts say security forces are increasingly being targeted, they also say there’s been an improvement in security in the country.An ambush on a police car on a weekend Friday morning. No group has claimed responsibly yet, but the attack carries the hallmarks of “Hasm” a group affiliated to the outlawed Muslim Brotherhood. Hasm and other terrorist groups have been targeting security forces since the ouster of the Muslim Brotherhood from power in a 2013 uprising. .“Always the enemy of terrorism is the security man who aims to protect civilians. Therefore his direct enemy is the terrorist who targets police forces. If they succeed in weakening security forces in all their forms, naturally extremism would prevail and control the people,” said Mohamed Al Behery of Al Masry Al Youm News.The timing is also a factor. This is the third attack on security forces in the last 10 days.“When the pressure has been mounting on terrorist groups such as ISIL and it’s affiliates in Syria and Iraq, the number of attacks increases in Sinai,” added Al Behery.“When we put pressure on them in Sinai, they had to increase operations to raise their moral and prove the group is not dead… this is only proof that the security crackdown in Sinai has been effective.”In spite of the latest surge, statistics show there has been a major improvement in the security situation in Egypt.The war on terrorism continues in Egypt. There might be losses along the way but the government says it is adamant on eradicating the terrorist groups from the country.last_img read more
