Muslim Brotherhood-oriented President Mohamed Morsi was ousted by the army in July 2013 in response to mass protests against his one-year rule.

Many Brotherhood members and loyalists, including Morsi himself, are currently jailed and have received appealable death sentences and life imprisonments over charges varying from inciting violence and murder to espionage and jailbreak.

Since Morsi’s removal, Egypt has been facing a wave of terror attacks that left hundreds of policemen, soldiers and civilians dead.

A Sinai-based group affiliated with the Islamic State regional terrorist group claimed responsibility for most of the terror attacks in Egypt.

Meanwhile, the Egyptian military and police killed hundreds of militants and arrested thousands of suspects as part of the country’s major anti-terror war.
