Timeline of terrorism in Egypt (2013–present)
  (Redirected from Insurgency in Egypt (2013–present))
This article is about the Islamist insurgency in mainland Egypt after the 2013 coup d'état. For the jihadist insurgency localized in the Sinai peninsula, see Sinai insurgency. For the mass protests after the 2013 coup d'état, see Post-coup unrest in Egypt (2013–2014). For the broader Egyptian crisis since 2011, see Egyptian crisis (2011–14).
In July 2013, at the same time as mass protests began against the 3 July coup d'état which deposed Mohamed Morsi, and in parallel with the escalation of the already ongoing jihadist insurgency in the Sinai Peninsula, pro-Muslim Brotherhood militants started violent attacks against policemen and soldiers in Central and Western Egypt. In the following months, new Islamist armed groups were created to reinstate Islamist rule in Egypt, like Soldiers of Egypt and the Popular Resistance Movement. Since 2013, violence in mainland Egypt has escalated and developed into a low-level Islamist insurgency against the Egyptian government.[6][7]
