Any encroachment should be eradicated to avoid the repetition of such action, he said.

Madbouli followed up by the 16th stage of removing encroachments from July 8 to July 27 in light of a report which he received from Local Development Minister Mahmoud Shaarawi.

Shaarawi said 6,437 construction encroachments were ditched alongside 2,721 encroachments on agricultural lands.
