Dozens of protesters at Ettehadiya Palace chanted against the Muslim Brotherhood and President Mohamed Morsy after seeing his convoy enter the palace.
The protesters chanted, "Morsy, you spare wheel, we will send you back to prison," "Leave!" and "I swear by its skies and land, it is the supreme guide who devastated the country."
The Republican Guards responded by forming a human wall to protect the president's convoy.
For the 15th day, protesters set up popular committees to check the identities of people entering the site of the sit-in, while Al-Masry Al-Youm reported that the numbers of the Republican Guards and Central Security Forces was reduced in the area of the protest, with more security forces seen at the palace gates.
There were 20 Central Security trucks on Haleem Aboul Kheir Street, which is close to the gate the president uses to enter the palace. There were two armored vehicles in front of Gates 1 and 2 on Ibrahim al-Laqqany.
