The Ministry of Interior has identified the perpetrators of the al-Badrashin attack on Friday, which led to the killing of five policemen, a sergeant and three conscripts.
The perpetrators are thought to be members of the Ganoub al-Giza (West Giza) cluster cell, which implemented over 18 terrorist attacks in Giza, alleges the Minster of Interior investigations.
According to the inquiries by the investigations’ squad, the perpetrators were responsible for the attack on a transit-duty station “Carta,” close to al-Balida village in al-Ayatt, which led to the killing of two armed forces’ officers and a conscript.
The security forces delivered photos taken from the oil station’s cameras to the police reporters to identify the perpetrators’ identity, raided their homes in al-Hawamdeya and Badrashin areas and interrogated their families. Eight suspicious persons were arrested for joining the cell and have been screened by the Homeland Security sector.
