Among the most prominent players who have been hacked their e-mail accounts, the goalkeeper of Egypt and Al Ahli club Mohammed Al-Shennawi, and the Egyptian team defender and Zamalek club Mahmoud Hamdi "Alonsh".
The official in the American Institute for Security Studies, David Riboy, that these actions are fully consistent with Qatar's policy of sabotage: "The billions Qatar spent on organizing the World Cup, and their apparent willingness to do all the suspicious things to ensure access to the organization, demonstrates the great interest of the Qatari system to use football as a tool for influence."
Repoi added: "There are many reasons that push Qatar to penetrate the means of communication to known people .. Including silencing critics, in this case, may be to influence the Egyptian players to sabotage the Egyptian team."
Fahmy said: "Electronic penetration is certainly the largest electronic sabotage in history, it reached several regions in the world, and lasted for nearly four years, between 2014 and present." During his investigation last year, Fahmi confirmed that hackers backed by Qatar had monitored and sometimes seized thousands of e-mails.
Fahmy, who worked with criminal experts during his investigation, said: "These hackers used virtual networks to indicate that they were working in different countries around the world, but the electronic system would stop working for a few minutes.
Qatar, specifically from Orado, the country's largest telecommunications company.
Fahmi said he found other hard evidence of the breakthroughs, including Whatsapp hackers' messages, in which they boasted of taking over e-mail accounts and e-mail contents.
Fahmi concluded his meeting by saying: "It is shameful to be an organized country for the 2022 World Cup and spying on football players, imagine what happens when all the countries participating in Qatar and using the Qatari Internet networks in hotels, it is a crime, and the FIFA must intervene to prevent it."
