FJP: At least 213 Martyrs Killed by Coup Forces Live Bullets

FJP: At least 213 Martyrs Killed by Coup Forces Live Bullets on Friday of Anger

Vengeful forces of Egypt’s putschists shoot to kill as they murder 213 peaceful protesters on Friday, a toll likely to rise as hundreds more are wounded.

Saturday, August 17,2013

Dr. Murad Ali, Freedom and Justice Party (FJP) media adviser, said that the coup forces in Egypt killed 213 unarmed and non-violent demonstrators in Friday of Anger mass rally in provinces across Egypt. The cold-blooded police and army units also shot and wounded hundreds more of the peaceful demonstrators. Unfortunately, these figures are likely to rise.

Yesterday evening, the Anti-Coup, Pro-Legitimacy National Alliance announced the start of the “Putschists’ Departure” week – from today (Saturday August 17), to break the bloody military coup.

The Alliance urged the masses of the Egyptian people as well as political and national groups and movements to demonstrate daily in marches that kick off from the same places as the Friday of Anger demonstrations, after noon prayers, and head toward Ramses Square, until the coup is defeated and its actions reversed.

ENDS
