|The banner of the militia|
In what considered the first public appearance for the minister of interior since the attack , Al-Adly stated that the group that was linked to Al-Qaeda hid behind members they recruited in Egypt !!
The statement did not explain how the militia managed to penetrate the Egyptian society despite all the security measures between the Gaza-Egypt borders and in Sinai n general. The statement also did not explain who were those members the militia managed to recruit in Egypt.
Update : The group has denied any responsibility to the attack according to its spokesperson in Gaza despite praising the operations !!!!!!!!!!!
The group has extremely bad relation with Hamas and saving Johnston was a tip of the ice berg whether politically or even theologically if we consider their views about Iran and Shiites.
The Palestinian army of Islam was founded by Mumtaz Dughmush who is too controversial to make us wonder more and more about who is actually that group and why it was made. Unlike what it is was shortly mentioned about Dughmush in his Wikipedia English entry , he was not only member in Hamas but he used to be a staff sergeant in the preventive security prison when notorious and corrupted Mohamed Dahlan was heading the security apparatus. Dughmush resigned from the apparatus to join suddenly Hamas then he resigned from Hamas to join the popular resistance committees then he resigned to found his army.
Many Palestinians believe that he is an agent of Dahlan sent to spread chaos in Gaza , some even believed that this is a CIA backed group that is being used to hit Hamas and other militias whose primary goal is the land .
Mumtaz belongs to the Dughmush clan that is being dubbed as the Sopranos of Gaza and among their operations attacking the house of Mahmoud Al-Zahar of Hamas using rockets !!!!!!
This is not the first time the name of Dahlan is brought up directly or indirectly as harmful to Egypt and our national security.
Now people online have mixed feelings , first of all many are suspecting the MOI’s statement , it is easy to blame foreign terrorist group after all that time , second some are suspecting that this is an introduction for an attack on Gaza using the attack of Alexandria boldly.
