Urgent: Public Announcement To The World

Part of the millions of civilians gathered at the Rabia-Al Adawiyya square have been attacked at the entrance of the square by Egyptian security forces including the use of real ammunition. It has been established that during the attack also discriminate shootings with the intention of killing took place. From what is reflected in the news 136 people are massacred. Over 4500 people are injured. There is insufficient medical care for the injured. The number of deaths keeps rising by the hour.

On the other side it is reported that also in Alexandria at least 11 civilians have lost their lives. A group of civilians, including women and children who fled the attack took shelter in the Al Kaid Ebrahim Mosque. This mosque is surrounded by the “Baltage” and the civilians whose lives are in danger are waiting for help.

Besides, it is reported that there is fear of an operation and bigger massacre on the civilians with large numbers of civilians, children, elder and disabled people gathered at the squares in Egypt including the Rabia-Al Adawiyya square under the command of the military coup regime.

The main international treaties being in the first place, all legal norms, human rights and freedoms have been violated in front of the entire World by General Sisi and the military regime officials and they are committing crimes against humanity.

IHH is calling upon the World with a deep concern on the developments in which the free will, the culture of elections and human rights are carelessly violated.

Our call to the International Authorities, Governments, Non-Governmental Organizations, religious leaders, every conscience person as member of the family of humanity and the World public is:

- urgent action has to be taken in order to stop the massacre in Egypt
- a military operation on the squares, which is strongly presumed should be prevented
