Terror attacks continue to present an escalating threat to Egypt’s security. Most markedly, the deadliest attacks on Egypt’s soil in nearly a decade occurred on October 24, and Egypt’s most powerful militant group, Ansar Bayt al-Maqdis, declared its allegiance to the Islamic State this past week.
In the interest of providing the most accurate and timely information on which to assess these developments, the Tahrir Institute for Middle East Policy (TIMEP) presents the first edition of its monthly Egypt Security Watch Briefings. These briefings will serve to update TIMEP’s first full comprehensive report: Egypt’s Security: Threat and Response.
The report and briefings are part of our larger, ongoing Egypt Security Watch project, which provides the most comprehensive available resource to monitor Egypt’s security situation, including an interactive map plotting all instances of violence or state operations, state actor and terror group profiles, and expert analyses. Please find attached the first monthly briefing for October 2014.
