CAIRO, Dec. 5 (Xinhua) -- Egyptian security forces massively trooped to streets near the presidential palace in Cairo's Heliopolis region Wednesday evening to separate supporters and opponents of Egyptian President Mohamed Morsi there, state-run Nile TV reported.
The police managed to set a human barrier between the two sides, Nile TV reported, adding that the police maintained utmost self- restraint, but attacks on it will face decisive measures, including using tear gas.
Egyptian Health Ministry denied reports that some people died during the clashes outside the palace, adding that at least 211 people were injured during the clashes between supporters and opponents of Morsi, and affirming that most cases are in stable conditions.
For his part, Egyptian Prime Minister Hesham Qandil called Wednesday night all the protesters around the palace to immediately leave the region and give a chance to the ongoing efforts for starting a national dialogue to solve the current crisis, official MENA news agency reported.
Fresh clashes raged outside the presidential palace earlier in the day, as some pro-Morsi protesters removed by force tents of anti-Morsi people, after some Islamic forces called for a demonstration supporting Morsi outside the palace.
The opponents called for reforming the Islamist-dominated Constituent Assembly, stopping the constitution referendum scheduled for Dec. 15, and abolishing the constitutional declaration issued last month, which they considered as Morsi's move to sweep powers.
On Nov. 22, Morsi issued a new constitutional declaration which rules that all laws, decrees and constitutional declarations issued by the president since he came into office on June 30 are final and unchallengeable by anybody..
