Al-Araby Al-Jadeed newspaper cited Egyptian and Western diplomats in Cairo as saying that there are new changes that have been recently made to the General Intelligence Service in Egypt, which included officials working on important foreign files.

According to an Egyptian diplomat, the recent changes affected prominent officials in the files of Libya, Palestine, Egyptian-American relations, and the Horn of Africa, which is related to the crisis of the Grand Ethiopian Renaissance Dam.

Another Egyptian diplomat said that some of the recent changes could be logical, as they affected individuals in files that were not managed in the appropriate manner, and saw many wrong calculations, especially, the files of the Renaissance Dam and Libya, in addition to Sudan.

Earlier, Egyptian diplomats had revealed to Al-Araby Al-Jadeed that there was some sort of confusion in the diplomatic and security circles responsible for following up on the Libyan and Sudanese files.

One of the diplomats, who spoke last month to Al-Araby Al-Jadeed, said that the recent crises that occurred in Sudan and Libya had revealed wrong Egyptian calculations, stressing that the "Egyptian bets were wrong and the parties that Egypt bet on and invested in during the previous period were not up to expectations."

The official in charge of the Libyan file in Egypt, Major General Abbas Kamel, is one of the most prominent leaders of the Egyptian intelligence agency and he was the former secretary of President Abdel Fattah Al-Sisi. Kamel is considered to have great influence on political and military officials in eastern Libya, as many opponents of the Bashagha government consider him one of the most significant masterminds behind the political deal that produced Bashagha's government.
