Egypt’s Muslim Brotherhood called for another massive rally in the country in support of the ousted president Mohamed Morsi.
Issam Al-Urian, deputy of Freedom and Justice Party, affiliated to Muslim Brotherhood, on Thursday invited people to attend rallies on Friday to defeat the bloody military coup.
He condemned the removal of Morsi from power on July 3, saying it destroyed the accomplishments of the 2011 revolution which led to the overthrow of Hosni Mubarak.
He also condemned the Egyptian army’s use of force against people, including supporters of Mohamed Morsi.
Egypt has plunged into a fresh wave of unrelenting violence since July 3 when the army unseated Morsi, the first democratically elected Egyptian head of state.
On August 14, the Egyptian army launched a bloody crackdown on two camps erected by pro-Morsi demonstrators in Cairo, killing nearly 600 people in a single day, the bloodiest in the North African country’s recent history.
Security forces have also arrested many high-ranking members of the Muslim Brotherhood, some of whom are on trial in Egyptian courts.
