Head of Egyptian intelligence Morad Mowafi admitted that the Arab country had received intelligence warnings prior to Sunday’s terror attack in Sinai, which left 16 Egyptian border guards dead.
Speaking to Turkish news agency Anadulo following a meeting with Egyptian President Mohamed Morsi in Cairo on Tuesday, Mowafi said, “This incident should never raise any questions regarding the efficiency of the security forces in Sinai and their alertness.”
He said Egypt also had information regarding the “terrorist group” that committed the attack.
“Yes, we had detailed information about the attack, but we never imagined that a Muslim would kill a Muslim on the hour of breaking the fast in Ramadan,” Egypt’s intelligence chief told the news agency.
