On anniversary of Rabaa: State incurred millions due to MB sit-in

Sat, Aug. 12, 2017
CAIRO – 14 August 2017: Four years have passed since the dispersal of the Rabaa al-Adawiya sit-in, which has left losses estimated in the millions of Egyptian pounds inflicted on state institutions.

On August 14, 2013, security forces set out on dispersing the Muslim Brotherhood-dominated sit-in in Nasr City’s Rabaa al-Adawiya, along with another sit-in that was located in Nahda Square in Giza.

The Rabaa al-Adawiya sit-in, which was proven to have been armed to the teeth, was primarily forged by former Muslim Brotherhood-affiliated President Mohamed Morsi supporters and sympathizers in support of his “alleged” legitimacy.

The cumulative losses that have occurred to the surrounding vital buildings of the sit-in in the aftermath of the dispersal of the "armed-terrorists" were estimated at around LE 50 million ($2.8M).

The chairman of Egypt’s National Railway Authority Hussien Zakaria said that the losses of the authority amounted to LE 6.5 million on account of the series of sabotage acts that followed the dispersal of the MB sit-in in Rabaa and Nahda.

The estimated losses of Rabaa al-Adawiya Mosque’s assembly were LE 5.05 million. The servant of the mosque contends that the mosque’s contents were all damaged, including air conditioners, fans, carpets and more.

As much as LE 5 million in losses were inflicted on the General Directorate of Traffic following a wave of damage done to its buildings, computer room and air conditioning.

Additionally, three of the vehicles affiliated to the General Authority for Cairo Cleaning and Beautification were damaged, while two police-affiliated armored tanks were vandalized, as well as another 42 police vehicles.

About four kilometers of electrical cables were vandalized and stolen in Cairo, as well as the lighting poles and bulbs located in the area around the sit-in.

the "Terrorist gatherings" cost Al-Azhar LE 750,000 to repair the damages of the female student hostels at Al-Azhar University.
