September 24, 2019

Sinai activist Massaad Abu Fager has accused Abdel Fattah al-Sisi and his son Mahmoud of being behind attacks targeting the Egyptian army in northern Sinai.

Abu Fager said in a video posted on Twitter that “a military intelligence officer commissioned by al-Sisi and his son Mahmoud masterminded the attack on the Central Security Camp in el-Arish in Sinai in 2017, and he himself masterminded the Rafah attack under the late President Mohamed Morsi.”

Abu Fager appeared in a number of recordings during which he attacked al-Sisi and accused his son Mahmoud of running a complex network to smuggle goods and money through the tunnels and the Rafah crossing into the Gaza Strip, generating a monthly profit estimated at about $45 million, stressing that “the money does not enter the state budget.”
