Mujahadi Bayt al-Maqdis Brigades (Sinai)(JAMB)

Jamaat Ansar Bayt al-Maqdis is based in Gaza, and many of their members are former fighters in Palestinian resistance groups as well as Egyptian salafists using the Sinai as base. They have cells on both sides of the border and can launch attacks from multipe locations. According to Long War Journal, although jihadists have announced al-Qaeda's presence in the Sinai on multiple occasions, the group is more involved than previously thought. Ramzi Mawafi, Osama bin Laden's physician, has been identified as the head of AQ in the Sinai. In August 2011, CNN reported that Mawafi had established operations in the Sinai following his escape from Egyptian prison. Known for his bomb-making expertise, Mawafi is thought to have set up an explosives laboratory in Tora Bora with Bin Laden prior to the 9/11 attacks.2013 Incident 2013 Egyptian interior minister survives car bomb attack Mohammed Ibrahim who is charge of the countrys police force targeted as his convoy travelled through Nasr…

Groups and individuals included in TRAC's database range from actual perpetrators of social or political violence to more passive groups that support or condone (perhaps unwittingly) such violence. The spectrum of violence represented by these groups is vast, from Jihadists who bomb train stations to financial institutions that transfer funds. Some groups that originally engaged in violence but have since become legitimate political parties are included to provide historical perspective. TRAC is in no way attempting to determine whether groups or individuals are terrorists -- only to convey reported information about their activities and official State status. While TRAC attempts to ensure the accuracy of its TRAC database, the entries in the database are from numerous different sources. Hence, TRAC cannot and does not warrant the accuracy of the entries in its database. The editors of TRAC may modify these entries at any time and welcome comments and suggested corrections or additions.  Please write [email protected] or hit the "SUBMIT ADDITIONS" button on the page of the group profile about which you wish to comment.

TRAC is a unique, comprehensive resource for the study of political violence of all kinds.
