The armed forces cautioned against use of violence or attacking any military installation during protests on Friday.

Colonel Ahmed Ali, the spokesman of the armed forces, released a statement on Thursday stressing the military’s commitment to foster the freedom of expression and secure peaceful protests.

“Whoever resorts to violence and deviates from protesting peacefully on Friday will endanger his life; he will be dealt with very strictly according to the law to preserve the security of citizens and the country,” the statement read.

The statement was released following calls by the National Coalition for Supporting Legitimacy (NCSL) for protests on Friday titled “Breaking the Coup”.

The NCSL, a coalition of Islamist parties and movements supporting ousted former president Mohamed Morsi, called for people to gather in all squares after noon prayers on Friday, in a statement released on Thursday.

Protest marches will depart from 18 mosques in Cairo and Giza; the NCSL called on “supporters of legitimacy” in all governorates to protest as well.

“The NCSL stresses that the exit from the current crisis caused by the bloody military coup is to … restore legitimacy represented in the return of the elected president, activating the suspended constitution and the return of the Shura Council; all of which should come about through peaceful means” the statement by NCSL read.

6 April movement called on people to gather at the Presidential Palace and in Tahrir Square to “prevent Muslim Brotherhood members from taking over revolutionary squares”.

6 April said they had information on the planned protests by Islamists that aim to occupy all streets and squares in vital areas around Cairo and Giza.

Protesters had planned to gather in Tahrir and the presidential palace after breaking their fast to commemorate the 6 October 1973 victory; 6 April called on protesters to gather after noon prayers instead.
