“The attack on Cleopatra by the terrorist Muslim Brotherhood [group] is a black ring in a series of outrageous attacks against Egyptian institutions by states and groups in the region, which hide hatred to our beloved Egypt, and are jealous of achievements and efforts towards progress at all levels of economic and social infrastructure, in addition to local and foreign investment,” he added.

Cleopatra chairman said that the Brotherhood spread rumors about his factories stopped working; however, he countered the narration adding that “the factories are in complete stability, and the production machines have not stopped or been affected by these rumors, but the workers have a greater determination to continue to work and do more in response to these false news.”
Enein also said that a total of 10,000 workers at Cleopatra factories in Suez governorate organized a demonstration in support of President Abdel Fatah al-Sisi.
