The Arab Socialist Ba'ath Party – Egypt Region (Arabic: حزب البعث العربي الاشتراكي- مصرHizb Al-Ba'ath Al-Arabi Al-Ishtiraki – Misr) is an Egyptian Neo-Ba'athist political party. It is the Egyptian regional branch of the Iraqi-led Ba'ath Party.

The party supports the removal of Bashar al-Assad as President of Syria while opposing any foreign intervention in the conflict, whether by Israel, Turkey or Iran, as the party believes all such countries have ulterior motives and seek to undermine Syria.[1]

The party was outlawed in the early 1990s and two Iraqi Intelligence Officials were detained on 14 April 1991 with $38,000 in their possession, money which the Egyptian authorities claimed was to be used to fund sabotage operations in Egypt.[2]

Several other Egyptian Ba'athists, including the poet Muhammad Afifi Matar, were also detained in April 1991 on suspicion of involvement in an Iraqi terrorist plot.[3]
