Two suspects in Bula al-Dakrour were arrested by security forces in Giza on Tuesday for allegedly manufacturing bombs.
According to investigations, the defendants assaulted a first lieutenant in Mohandiseen, seized his weapon and tear gas gun and burned a police car near al-Said Club in Mohandiseen last month.
The security forces arresed three suspects last week in a car on the Ring Road at Waraq neighborhood. Investigations found bombs in their possession which they allegedly intended to use at checkpoints on the Ring Road and Lebanon Square.
According to investigations, the defendants admitted they formed two cells to manufacture bombs and target police facilities and personnel in Giza.
Investigations carried out under the supervision of Head of Giza Security Directorate Major General Kamal al-Daly identified four other suspects in addition to those arrested on the Ring Road. Two of them were arrested on Tuesday and the other two are currently being hunted.
The two defendants have reportedly confessed to manufacturing the bombs, possessing Molotov cocktails, assaulting security forces in Mohandiseen and mobilizing pro-Muslim Brotherhood marches.
