Egyptian army says Palestinian planned car bomb attack in Sinai

Dec. 26, 2013 9:39 A.M. (Updated: Dec. 27, 2013 4:20 P.M.)
CAIRO (Ma’an) – The Egyptian army in cooperation with Rafah city police on Wednesday morning detained a Palestinian man who allegedly confessed he was planning to place a car bomb at an Egyptian security site.

Army spokesman Ahmad Muhammad Ali said Jumaa Khamis Breika was driving a white Mercedes with North Sinai plates and “confessed during interrogation that he intended to blow it up at a vital security site.”

The suspect was allegedly residing illegally in Egypt.

Egyptian security sources claimed that the suspect was affiliated to Hamas, but Hamas in the Gaza Strip denied the claims.

“The so-called Jumaa Khamis Breika has nothing to do with Hamas and his name doesn’t appear in the population registry of the Gaza Strip,” a Hamas statement said.

Additionally, Egyptian security in North Sinai arrested Ahmad Azmi Hasan, a doctor affiliated to an Islamist military group called al-Furqan. Osama Ahmad Ashour, a Bedouin from North Sinai was also arrested along with two other Bedouins affiliated to an Islamist fundamentalist group.

The statement urged the Egyptian authorities to “be accurate” in their reports and “stop implicating Hamas in the ongoing events in Egypt.”
