al Hakaimaha's faction, Egytian Islamic Group (EIG)

Al Qaeda Franchise in Egypt

  • August 2006 merger between al-Qaeda and Muhammad Khalil al-Hakaimah’s faction of the Egyptian Islamic Group (EIG) (see Terrorism Focus, September 12, 2006).
  • The EIG had been largely dormant for several years after incurring severe setbacks. Furthermore, much as al-Hakaimah does not seem to represent the core of the EIG, Al-Libi is also believed to represent only a minority within the LIFG.
