The Muslim Brotherhood-led National Alliance to Support Legitimacy has vowed to “hang coup leaders,” referring to interim authorities which succeeded toppled president Mohamed Morsy.
In a statement posted on the website of the Brotherhood’s Freedom and Justice Party on Friday, the alliance said it is on its way to “immediate and fair retribution against killers of martyrs since 25 January (2011).”
The declaration comes as Muslim Brotherhood loyalists and their Islamist supporters plan a fresh wave of protests in Cairo and Giza condemning the ouster of Morsy and security crackdown on their demonstrations.
The alliance called supporters on Thursday to get prepared for a “grave matter” during next week’s protests.
On field, police dispersed a march by alliance supporters that hardly set off from al-Salam Mosque in Nasr City. Forces used tear gas, prompting protesters to escape to separate streets.
At al-Aziz Bellah Mosque in Zeitoun, also in Cairo, a number of the congregation engaged in squabbles with the Friday sermon preacher who urged “renunciation of violence to avoid civil war,” to which a number of Brotherhood loyalists replied with disapproving chants.
Another march, including a large number of women and children, moved from Hossary Mosque in the 6th of October City following the Friday sermon. Some participants hoisted banners urging citizens to boycott the anticipated referendum on the amended constitution. Limited wrangles took place between demonstrators and drivers enraged over hindered traffic movement.
Another protest chanting slogans against the Interior Ministry and the Armed Forces was also tear-gased outside al-Rayyan Mosque in Maadi.
