With Muslim Brotherhood Crushed, Egypt Sets Sights on Hamas – Yasmine Saleh (Reuters)

(Daily Alert)

    After crushing the Muslim Brotherhood at home, Egypt’s military rulers plan to undermine the Palestinian militant group Hamas, which runs neighboring Gaza.

    The aim, which could take years to pull off, includes working with Hamas’ political rival Fatah and supporting popular anti-Hamas activities in Gaza, four security and diplomatic officials said.

    “Gaza is next,” said one senior security official. “We cannot get liberated from the terrorism of the Brotherhood in Egypt without ending it in Gaza, which lies on our borders.”

    “We know that Hamas is powerful and armed, but we also know that there are other armed groups in Gaza that are not on good terms with Hamas and they could be used to face Hamas,” another Egyptian security source said.
