Anti-Govt. Protests in Egypt Leave 6 Dead after Eid Prayers

Anti-Govt. Protests in Egypt Leave 6 Dead after Eid Prayers
Alwaght-Egyptian forces have killed at least six people during clashes with anti-government protesters after Eid al-Fitr prayers marking the end of the holy month of Ramadan.
On Friday, Egyptian police forces attacked protesters who had gathered after Eid al-Fitr prayers in different areas across the country, leaving at least six dead across the city of Giza.
Egyptian forces clamped down on protesters, firing live rounds in different areas including in the capital, Cairo, as well as in Al Sharqia, Fayoum, and Bani Suef provinces.
Dozens of protestors have been apprehended during a massive crackdown by security forces.
The demonstrations came as ousted Muslim Brotherhood-backed former president Mohamed Morsi in an unconfirmed Eid message called on Egyptians to save the country from what he described as "the oppressive tyrants" currently in control of the nation.
Morsi, Egypt’s first democratically-elected president, was overthrown in July 2013 by the military led by Abdel Fattah el-Sisi, the former head of the armed forces and current president. Egypt has been the scene of protests since.
Last month, Morsi was handed the death sentence along with 130 other defendants for allegedly orchestrating a 2011 jail break during the uprising that led to the ouster of the country’s former dictator Hosni Mubarak.
Many Muslim Brotherhood leaders and members have also been imprisoned.
Egypt’s harsh crackdown on the Brotherhood and its supporters, which has led to the death of hundreds of people, has been widely condemned by international human rights organizations.
In November 2013, Egypt’s military-backed government outlawed unauthorized protests, ensnaring thousands of critics of the regime. In December, the Muslim Brotherhood was declared a terrorist group.
The renewal of the protests on Friday came as Egypt has faced a sharp rise in terrorist attacks since June, most of which have been claimed by an ISIS terrorist group affiliate based in the northern Sinai Peninsula.
The latest attack was on Thursday when the group, known as Wilayat al Sinai or Sinai Province, claimed to have destroyed an Egyptian Navy vessel in the Mediterranean Sea using a rocket. The attack was the first of its kind and showcased the increased sophistication of the terrorist’s tactics, which had mostly been confined to suicide bombings of military and police installations.
Egypt’s military said the vessel caught fire in an exchange of gunfire with terrorists but hasn’t commented on the claim the frigate was targeted by a rocket and destroyed.
