Abu-Kabir City Residents Denounce Coup Extrajudicial Killing of 4 Anti-Coup Youths

The people of Abu-Kabir city (in Sharqeya Province) denounced Interior Ministry militias who brutally murdered four local youths, and demanded an end to extrajudicial killings of opponents of the military coup.

Earlier on Friday, security coup forces killed Mohamed Ibrahim, 20; and Ali Al-Sayed, 19 (both were university students), by forcing them inside a car and blowing it up, at the entrance of the Abu-Kabir city in the governorate of Sharqeya. Coup forces had arrested both young men at dawn on the same Friday.

A witness (and friend of the two young men) said he spoke with them during their arrest on Friday in Cairo. Meanwhile, a member of the defense team of detainees in Sharqeya affirmed that the two youths had been arrested at dawn on Friday (November 6) in Cairo. He added that they had been hounded by military junta security forces for some time.

People in the city of Abu-Kabir were shocked to hear a loud explosion at the city’s entrance during Friday prayers. They were more shocked to learn that killed in the car were Mohamed Ibrahim and Ali Al-Sayed, who had been arrested at dawn on Friday. Two passers-by (Salah Murad and Abdul-Rahman Murad Murad) were also killed in the blast as they walked by.

Shortly afterwards, coup security militias arrested martyr Mohamed Ibrahim’s mother and sister and martyr Ali Al-Sayed’s father from their homes in the province, with no regard for their grief, nor religious, compassionate or social considerations.

The Anti-Coup Pro-Legitimacy National Alliance in Abu-Kabir mourned the martyrs, and warned that it "holds the coup regime fully responsible for any angry reactions if the victims’ families are not released immediately.

"We extend our most heartfelt sorrow and condolences to the victims’ families, asking God to grant the martyrs eternal peace and bliss. We assure all that retribution will inevitably be achieved, soon."
