Egypt Outlines Brotherhood Help To Hamas
CAIRO [MENL] -- Egypt has alleged that the Islamic opposition established an
aid pipeline to the Hamas regime in the Gaza Strip.
Egyptian officials said the opposition Muslim Brotherhood has
established a network to relay financial and military assistance to the
Hamas regime. The officials said the aid has flowed through several routes,
including Egypt's Sinai Peninsula, which neighbors the Gaza Strip.
"This is a steady effort in which certain people were assigned the task
of assessing Hamas's needs and sending the required aid," an Egyptian
security source said.
Egypt plans to prosecute a Brotherhood member said to play
a key role in the effort to aid Hamas. The member was identified as Abdulahi
El Farmawi, a deputy at Al Azhar University in Cairo.
