CAIRO, August 16. (Itar-Tass) – Supporters of ousted president Mohammed Morsi went on the offensive, attempting to storm Tahrir square in central Cairo. Islamist protesters tried to break through a barbed wire barricade erected by law enforcements, but were met with heavy resistance from the military, which blocked off the region Friday morning.
The tense situation is escalating by the minute. Muslim Brotherhood seems to have chosen guerilla warfare and spread its agents across the country, forcing to Egypt’s military to dissipate its forces. Islamist militants apply hit and run tactics, striking with small assault teams with firearms.
For instance, militants occupied the May 15 Bridge located in the vicinity of Cairo’s television center. From this location masked gunmen open fire at law enforcements and residential buildings after a failed attempt of storming the TV center. Egypt’s military repelled the attack with tear gas canisters. Currently Air Force helicopters patrol Cairo skies.
Morsi sympathizers have gathered on the Ramses square, located not far from Tahrir. Several thousand protesters planned a mass demonstration to al-Iman mosque in Nasr City, where Muslim Brotherhood leaders are located. After violent clashes with the local population Ramses was littered with burning tires, set ablaze by the Islamists.
