It is a long day in Cairo. I started it with a quick visit to Quorsaya island where clashes took place between civilian residents and army units then when I returned back home I found clashes between army officers and officers in some police station in New Cairo.
At the same time I heard the protesters commemorating the Mohamed Mahmoud clashes' first anniversary by having clashes once with the police forces. It is like reviving the whole scene in miniature way to be accurate. The protesters threw Molotov cocktail and rocks at police forces that threw tear gas grenades. There is also field hospital for the injured that are suffering from wounds and suffocations. There are also motorcycle medics. It is a small déjà vu.
DO NOT ASK ME WHY THIS IS HAPPENING ONCE AGAIN BECAUSE I DO NOT KNOW AND I DO NOT CARE TO KNOW ACTUALLY. I AM TIRED OF ADRELINE JUNKIES IN THIS COUNTRY.
What is interesting and funnier for me is the clash between the police and the army. Once again the army officers beat crap out of the police officers because the later insulted them. It seems that the fight started at the 2nd police station in New Cairo between a Police officer and the army officer that ended with the police officer shooting the army officer in his foot. It developed to 800 army officers “according to news reports” came suddenly from no where besieging the police station demanding the arrest of that police officer who shot their colleague !!
The commander of the central zone had to arrive to the scene to stop that Egypt remake of army Vs.navy fight in 1941 !! The military police had to protect the police station by the request of the police station’s sheriff !!!!
It is not the first time that a police officer gets in to a fight with an army officer and the fight ends by the whole battalion smash down the police station and the ministry of interior apologizes to the ministry of defense !! It always starts as personal issue and gets bigger and bigger.
Here is an eye witness’ testimony “Arabic”
It is like a black comedy film !! I mean the police officers fired tear gas grenades at the army officers and the army officers hurled rocks at the police station
Here is the police station after that battle or rather attack.
In mid 1990s a police officer sexually harassed a lady and threatened to send her to jail because she slapped him and refused his advanced. That lady turned to be the wife of a special forces officer and she told him what happened. As Egyptian man he defended his honor and his wife’s honor with the help of his battalion who brought down El Nozha police station over that police officer and those who defended him. The ministry of interior apologized to the ministry of defense.
Of course we should not forget the Class of 2009 in the military academy that attacked the 15th May Police station.
Protesters , army and police lost their mind in this country !! And Gaza is being shelled and kids are killed in Assuit !! I am starting to believe in 2012 !!
