Kuwaiti newspapers out Wednesday highlighted Egyptian authorities’ success in foiling a plot by Muslim Brotherhood to target state facilities during celebrations of June 30 revolution anniversary.
Headlined “Egypt foils MB plot to target Egyptian economy”, Al Seyassah newspaper said the Egyptian Interior Ministry succeeded in targeting 19 economic entities run by MB leaderships secretly to harm national economy.
The ministry released a videotape shedding light on these companies and some Egyptian figures, including former lawmakers and fugitive MB leaderships.
Al Nahar newspaper also talked about the MB scheme known as “Al Amal Plan”.
The scheme is based on uniting the ranks of the members of the terrorist group and providing them with the financial support they need from the revenues and profits of some economic entities that are run by the group’s leaders and their affiliates to target the state’s facilities and institutions during the celebrations.
Information received by the National Security Service revealed that the plan is focused on establishing routes for the financial funds sent illegally from abroad by some hostile countries to work on carrying out violent and riot acts across the country to disrupt celebrations of the revolution’s anniversary.
The scheme aimed at launching inciting campaigns in the media and through the social media and satellite TV channels that are broadcast from outside the country.
The Interior Ministry’s statement identified some of the MB leaders who are involved in the plan including Mahmoud Hussein, Ali Bateekh, anchor Moataz Matar, Mohammed Nasser as well as the fugitive leader of El Ghad Party Ayman Nour.
