Egyptian intelligence officials warned the Popular Resistance Committees that secretary general Zuheir al-Qaisi's life was in danger prior to his assassination by the IDF last Friday, a spokesperson for the Palestinian group said on Sunday.

PRC spokesperson Abu Mujahid told Palestinian news outlet Palestine Online that leaders from the group had met with Egyptian officials about a months ago, where Egyptian intelligence officials confirmed the danger to Qaisi's life.

Local sources also told the PRC that Israeli officials were following Qaisi "wherever he went," according to the report.
