Egypt Nabs Eilat Terror Suspect, Files Charges
Egypt had arrested and filed charges against Muhammad al-Teehi, who is believed to have been involved in the multi-pronged attack near Eilat in mid-August that killed eight Israelis.
According to Channel 2 News, Egyptian authorities say that al-Teehi belongs to a terror group affiliated with Al Qaeda. According to some reports he is the leader of Al-Takfir Wa Al-Hijra (Excommunication and Exodus), an armed Islamist group.
An Egyptian security source said that "al-Teehi was arrested in an operation by the security forces on the shores of El Arish, after urgent intelligence information was received that he was hiding in one of the huts that are located on the beach, near the police compound."
