CAIRO – 27 September 2019: Many Egyptians, reportedly thousands, took to the streets in Cairo in support to the incumbent president and government against pro-Muslim Brotherhood calls to organize chaotic protests to oust the regime.
The protests took place especially in Nasr City neighborhood – the same place where Muslim Brotherhood members and the group's supporters gathered in 2013 after former president Mohamed Morsi, also a leader in the group, was ousted.
Egypt has designated the Muslim Brotherhood group as terrorist since late in 2013, after former President Mohamed Morsi, who also served as head of the "terrorist" group, was ousted. Morsi died in June this year after he collapsed in court during his trial.
A voice message, believed to be recorded by fugitive Hani Sabry, allegedly a Muslim Brotherhood "terrorist" group member, has asked others who he called "youth" to send him links of Facebook accounts, as part of a systematic campaign attempting to oust the president.
Moreover, MBC Masr satellite channel broadcast last Friday a footage, which showed one of the "Muslim Brotherhood" leaders calling on supporters to gather near their houses and then fill the cities' squares.
Many members of the Egyptian community in Germany will celebrate on Saturday, the 40th anniversary of the fraternity agreement between Cairo and Frankfurt, Middle East News Agency reported.
The community members will use such occasion to reiterate their support to Egypt's president, amid pro-Muslim Brotherhood calls to organize unlicensed protests aiming to topple the regime, said Gerges Tous, an official in an Egyptian union in Frankfurt.
The celebration will be held in the presence of Khaled Taha, the Egyptian consul in Frankfurt and a number of officials from different German cities.
