Abdallah Mohamed Morsi, youngest son of ousted president, passed away on Wednesday, according to pro-Brotherhood social media users.
“The 25-year old young man died from heart attack,” said Haitham Abou Khalil, Brotherhood’s anchor.
Abdallah, whose birthday is on Sept. 3, died at a privately-owned hospital Al-Waha at Hadayek Al-Ahram district in Giza. Some of his friends on Facebook reported that he had died while driving his car.
In Oct. 2018, he was arrested for belonging to a banned group and spreading fake news.
Abdallah was released on bail hours later.
Attorney General Nabil Sadek ordered his release on bail of 5,000 Egyptian pounds on the charges after questioning by Egypt’s Supreme State Security Prosecution.
Abdullah is the youngest of Morsi’s five children and was sentenced to a year in jail in 2015 for drug possession.
Another son of the deposed president, Ossama Morsi, was arrested in 2016 for “incitement to violence”.
Since Morsi’s ouster, jihadist attacks have killed hundreds of police officers, soldiers and civilians.
Security forces have killed hundreds of jihadists since February, according to official sources, as part of a sweeping military campaign in the Sinai Peninsula against jihadist groups including the Islamic State.
Morsi died July 17, 2019, from heart attack. He was buried in Cairo alongside other senior figures of the Muslim Brotherhood.
Since 2015, the group was then banned in Egypt and declared as a terrorist organization.
Accordingly, other Gulf monarchies such as Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates followed suit, driven by the perception that the Brotherhood is a threat to their national security.
Russia, Bahrain and Syria followed the footprints of Egypt and categorized the group as a terrorist organization.
Today, the primary state backers of the Muslim Brotherhood are Qatar and Turkey.
In April 2019, the White House says that President Donald Trump plans to put the Brotherhood on the US terrorist blacklist, according to France 24.
