Egypt: Armed Forces Affirm They Will Not Tolerate Attacks On Islamists

The Armed Forces affirmed they will not tolerate insulting, provoking or attacking Islamists, especially their youth.

Spokesman for the Armed Forces Ahmed Mohamed Ali said measures, which were taken by the Armed Forces General Command in agreement with a number of religious, national and youth symbols, did not target the Islamist youth altogether or undermine their role in Egypt.

" Despite different views, we are sure young Islamists are keen on the stability of Egypt now and in the future," added the spokesman.
