Egypt military calls for Sisi to be ousted

Post by DJKeefy »

Officers in Egypt’s military called on citizens to take to the streets and bring an end to President Abdel Fattah Al-Sisi’s regime, Al-Khaleej Online reported yesterday.

The Egypt Officers Front, which said it is loyal to former chief of staff of the Egyptian Armed Forces Lieutenant General Sami Anan, said it would protect the demonstrators.

On Facebook, the group said the army would protect the demonstrators exactly as happened on 25 January 2011, when the regime of Hosni Mubarak was ousted.

It named Dr Mahmoud Refaat as the official spokesman for Sami Anan and called for everyone to contact him for information.

Refaat approved the reports and said he would release the names of the officers who would protect demonstrators, calling them “the honourable officers of the Egyptian army.”

I would have thought the army would be behind Sisi?

Perhaps he has become more of a smiling dictator than they were prepared for.

Also, knowing the growing unrest, perhaps they are preparing themselves as wolves in sheeps clothing.

Mahmoud Refaat, a former spokesperson for the detained Egyptian Armed Forces’ Chief of Staff, Sami Annan, revealed that security services close to President Abdel Fattah El-Sisi are carrying out a campaign of arbitrary and “crazy” arrests against several Egyptian army leaders.

Refaat, who did not deny nor confirm the accuracy of his appointment as a spokesperson for the Egyptian Officers Front, told Al-Khaleej Online that El-Sisi is carrying out pre-emptive measures to prevent a rebellion from within the military.

The “Egyptian Officers Front”, close to Sami Annan, called on the Egyptians to go out in demonstrations to demand the overthrow of El-Sisi’s regime, stressing that it would protect the demonstrators.

The call came in line with the request made by Egyptian actor and real-estate investor Mohamed Ali, who revealed widespread corruption within the army and the presidency systems.

I’d give Dr Rafaat’s chances of staying free about the same as a snowball in hell! (Assuming he’s actually in Egypt) :lol:

P.S. Al-Khaleej Online is a small, pretty insignificant, Gulf news outlet whose prognostications should be taken with a grain of salt.
