The Egyptian Ministry of Interior announced on Tuesday, September 24, that security forces killed six suspected militants during a raid in Cairo's 6th of October neighborhood. The militants were reportedly members of the outlawed Muslim Brotherhood group and were planning attacks. No casualties were immediately reported among security forces from the exchange of gunfire that killed the suspected militants.
Similar counterterrorism raids are to be expected in Egypt over the near term.
Individuals in Egypt are advised to monitor developments, adhere to instructions issued by local authorities and their home governments, report suspicious behavior and objects to the authorities, remain vigilant when visiting areas susceptible to terror activity (e.g. tourist sites, churches, international and government buildings, public transportation hubs, etc.), and anticipate similar security operations over the near term.
