Freedom and Justice Party (FJP) Secretariat in Dakahlia Governorate condemned a shooting attack on the party's headquarters in the province, where a gun-totting thug opened fire at the front of the building and fled the scene.
An FJP Secretariat statement said: "At about a quarter past ten in the evening, Tuesday, an unidentified suspect jumped out of a white Lancer car (license plate 9874DFS), carrying an automatic weapon, and sprayed the FJP Headquarters with machine-gun fire, damaging the building’s front, entrance and balcony.
"The FJP calls on competent authorities to assume their responsibilities and perform their duties, to put an end to political thuggery. Hostile webpages and individuals who already instigated attacks on FJP headquarters now incite more attacks against us.
The FJP urges everyone to join hands and close ranks to reject violence and support ongoing serious dialogue in order to help save the homeland and the people.
