Facebook users in Egypt would be 55-58 million by the end of this year – File Photo
CAIRO – 6 November 2020: Facebook FB.O announced on Friday that it has removed seven networks that spread fake news in Iran, Afghanistan, Egypt, Turkey, Morocco, Myanmar, Georgia, and Ukraine, Reuters reported.
According to the company’s statement, the network that operates in Cairo is connected with the banned group of the Muslim Brotherhood.
Terrorist Muslim Brotherhood web trolls have been attempting to stage mass protests across Egypt through sowing discord and spreading fake news and lies about key state figures.
The grand Muslim Brotherhood scheme included the creation of ordinary Facebook groups and pages to mobilize as many citizens and sympathizers to suddenly change their names and start calling to bring down the state and demolish all signs of progress and achievement under President Abdel Fatah al-Sisi.
The Egyptians were quick to expose the malice of the terrorist agenda carried out by the journalists who have fled Egypt, as the various social media platforms have turned to campaigns mocking the terrorist group that failed to mobilize people.
Egyptians launched hashtags on Twitter to thwart the terrorist group's recurring plot; these hashtags dominated the list of the most blogged and tweeted, and included: Egyptians are with you, Sisi - the Brotherhood is a lie and it's over - Egypt is all with you, Sisi - Sisi defeats the international organization –and Al-Sisi.
