The Cairo Criminal Court sentenced Tuesday two defendants to prison after being accused of armed robbery and joining a terrorist cell.
According to press reports, the terrorist cell, entitled “Regiment of Loyalty and Disavowal”, called for revolting against the regime and carried out a set of terrorist operations.
The defendants were also accused of monitoring Egypt's oil pipelines and ship movements in the Suez Canal in order to plan attacks on oil facilities and ships.
The cell members sought to disable the constitution and state institutions and assault police and tourists.
The security bodies seized equipment that could be used to manufacture engines possibly used for producing drones to be employed in violent acts of the cell, and design vehicles that can be controlled remotely, and create V1 missiles, which were used in WWII, etc.
