Tenth Brotherhood Martyr of Itehadia Palace Violence against Pro-Morsi Demonstrators

Today, Khaled Taha Abu-Zeid, the tenth martyr for the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt, died of his wounds in Demerdash Hospital in Cairo. He was killed by a gunshot wound to the neck in the recent Itehadia Palace events.

Born on September 12, 1988, the martyr was the youngest son of Dr. Taha Abu-Zeid, Muslim Brotherhood leader in Gharbiya Governorate.

Abu-Zeid is known in his home town as a courteous, generous, humble, young-man with a big heart and as big a smile.

He graduated from the Faculty of Agriculture, at the University of Tanta in 2011, where he majored in agricultural engineering – the same field of specialty as his father. He worked as an engineer and assistant agricultural expert.

The last thing the martyr wrote through his personal Facebook page, before his death, was: “Say ‘Praise be to God’. It heals hearts; lays sorrows to rest”.

In a statement, the martyr’s father, Brotherhood leader Taha Abu-Zeid, demanded retribution for his son be exacted on corrupt mass media and a number of delusional political thugs he holds responsible for inciting Egyptians to kill one another.
