Support for Morsi grows each day

World Bulletin / News Desk

The number of pro-Morsi protesters following the military coup that took place on July 3 increases each day. 

Around 5 thousand people rallied at Rabaa al-Adawiya Square marched towards the Presidential Palace after prayers on Wednesday night. 

Thousands of supporters came together to have their first fast-breaking meals in Ramadan. After practising the first Tarawih, special prayers which are held in mosques every night of the holy month Ramadan, anti-coup pro-Morsi demonstrators filled the streets and walked towards the palace carrying banners and chanting slogans for Mohamed Morsi, Egypt's first democratically elected president. 

The group did not face any intervention, however army forces closed the streets, which led to the palace and made a barricade with armoured vehicles.

After the group representatives talked to some army officials, the group went back to Rabaa al-Adawiya Square. 

Speeches were also held at the square stressing that it would not be allowed to make Egyptian people keep silent again. 

Over 50 pro-Morsi supporters were killed and hundreds were wounded outside the Republican Guards headquarters early on July 8, for which the Muslim Brotherhood accused security forces of opening fire on its supporters while performing the morning prayer.

Following the military coup on July 3, many pro-Morsi protesters rallied at Rabaa al-Adawiya Square in Nasr city of Cairo and have been standing against the coup as well as showing their support to Morsi since then.
