Calls to participate in an anti-regime demonstration on Friday are growing in Egypt after a youth was fatally shot by security forces in the country’s south.
An Egyptian businessman and dissident, Mohammed Ali, who lives in Spain called for the rally in all Egyptian squares, especially the Tahrir Square in Cairo which became a hub for the 2011 Arab Spring protests.
He gave it the name "Friday of Victory".
"Protests in Tahrir Square will convey the voice of angry Egyptians to the world, unlike protests in villages and hamlets in the cities," Ali said in a video posted on his Facebook account.
Meanwhile, Egyptian authorities issued a security alert on Thursday to quell the upcoming protests.
Sisi came to power in Egypt in July 2013 after deposing the country's first democratically elected president, Mohammad Morsi, in a military coup.
