Tahrir demonstrators celebrate victories of 30 June 2013, 1973 war
Protesters chant in favour of Egypt army and wave national flags across Cairo's iconic Tahrir Square
Published in Ahram Online on 19 - 07 - 2013

Thousands of demonstrators in Cairo's iconic Tahrir Square celebrated on Friday the 'success' of the nationwide 30 June protests that ousted president Mohamed Morsi after breaking their Islamic fast at sunset, chanting in favour of Egypt's armed forces for toppling the former president.
Participants also celebrated the 40th anniversary of Egypt's victory over Israel in the 10th of Ramadan/ 6th of October 1973.
They paid tribute to the martyrs of the 6 of October War as several banners were put up in praise 'of the soldiers who sacrificed their lives to defend Egypt's land.'
Many set off fireworks and held the national flag chanting "Long live Egypt."
In addition, protesters held up posters of military commander-in-chief and Defence Minister Abdel Fattah El-Sisi, who has recently gained popularity after the army deposed Morsi on 3 July amid mass nationwide protests against him.
Hundreds had started gathering on Friday at the main stage in the square shortly after breaking their Ramadan fast after sunset.
Parents of the victims of the violence that has occurred over the past couple of years spoke on stage and called upon Egyptian authorities to bring those responsible to justice.
The event was organised by Rebel (Tamarod) campaign, which spearheaded the 30 June protests, and the 30 June Front.
Thousands have also gathered at the presidential palace in Heliopolis to commemorate the anniverssay of the 1973 war.
Meanwhile, a number of pro-Morsi marches converged outside Cairo University in Giza early Friday afternoon.
Other marches made their way to Rabaa Al-Adawiya Mosque in Cairo's Nasr City, where Morsi supporters have been protesting since his ouster.
Demonstrators condemn what they say was a military coup against the country's democratically elected leader.
