Egyptian security forces dispersed a demonstration that the Muslim Brotherhood group called for holding on Friday Feb, 6th, in Cairo in front of Rabia al-Adawiya mosque.
After the demonstration was aborted and people were denied access to the place of the protest, 3 other demonstrations were held in Nasr City: At Geneina Mall, Nuri Khattab mosque and at the Medical Insurance Hospital in Nasr City.
It is worth noting that Mohamed Mahdi Akef, chairman of the Muslim Brotherhood, appealed on Wednesday afternoon to the Egyptian, Arab and Muslim peoples and freemen all over the world to work for preventing a possible Zionist aggression on Gaza .
Akef also called for immediately holding worldwide protests and demonstrations to sway the Zionists from implementing their criminal acts against civilians and innocent people in Gaza . He also called for continuous actions to have the blockade lifted and the crossings opened especially a permanent and complete opening of the Gaza-Egypt Rafah crossing
