Saif al-Adl is one of the first generation in the leadership of Al-Qaeda

Following the killing of al-Qaeda leader Ayman al-Zawahiri in a US air strike in the Afghan capital, Kabul, speculation arose that he would be succeeded in the leadership of the organization by his Egyptian citizen, “Saif al-Adl al-Masry”, a veteran of the organization.

And Mohamed Salah El-Din Zeidan, known as “Saif al-Adl al-Masry,” was born in Menoufia Governorate in Egypt, while there is a conflict in the date of his birth, as some sources say that he was born in 1960 and others say that he was born in 1963.

During his adolescence, Saif al-Adl visited the “Fajr al-Islam” mosque in Ishbeen al-Koum and adopted extremist ideas during that stage, but the circumstances surrounding his affiliation with the Egyptian “Islamic Jihad Movement” are still ambiguous.

In the mid-1980s, Saf al-Adl reached the rank of colonel in the Egyptian Special Forces and was active in the ranks of extremist Islamic groups opposed to the rule of the late Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak.
