The jihadists discussed their plans to start moving Syrian and Iraqi jihadists into Egypt in order to carry out terror operations there after the Eid al-Adha festival, which falls on Tuesday.


It was explained in the meeting that the attempted assassination against the Egyptian interior minister and the attack on a satellite dish, which is part of the state's TV communication system, were meant to demonstrate that they could access vital institutions in Cairo.
