Declaration of our responsibility for the targeting of the Cairo police headquarters and several security patrols in Greater Cairo

God’s thanks for he who said: “Fight them; Allah will punish them by your hands and will dig race them and give you victory over them and satisfy the breasts of a believing people.”

We declare our responsibility for the targeting of the Cairo police headquarters with a remote-detonated car bomb.

We were also responsible for the central security force that was targeted in front of the Bohooth metro station and had vested interest in repressing one of the demonstrations.

We claim responsibility for the targeting of a security patrol with four hand grenades outside the al-Talibya police station.

We also targeted the traitor criminal Gereir Mostafa for joining the security forces to repress a one of the demonstrations on al-Haram Street.

In this context, we repeat our call for our people in Egypt to stay away from the police and security headquarters and departments. We are greatly suffering to operate without  harming Muslims.

After all this we say to our great nation: this is just the beginning…expect more

Your sons.

We do not have any social media accounts.

We do not have an email address, note do we communicate with any official or unofficial actors.

We warn everyone that the only certified sources for our statements are the websites of Elders of Islam and Islamic Redemption. We are being subjected to a smear campaign releasing uncertified statements.
