The Egyptian Ministry of Endowments warned of “sinful schemes” by “terrorist groups” ahead of the fourth anniversary of the 25 January Revolution, in a statement it released on Friday.
The statement warned particularly against the Muslim Brotherhood, which it claimed “works with all its strength to destabilise the country, implementing schemes to destroy the nation”, adding that the group is working in the interests of the “Zionist enemy”.
Meanwhile, the Anti-Coup Alliance, a coalition of different Islamist groups, primarily the Muslim Brotherhood, called on people to demonstrate ahead of the 25 January anniversary, in protests they coined: “March towards Freedom and Dignity.”
“All security and army forces should disobey orders to the kill the Egyptian people or assault them in any way, or to partake in terrorist crimes and the protection of the colonial, authoritarian clients of Camp David,” the Anti-Coup Alliance said in a statement earlier this week.
Authorities have cracked down on the Brotherhood since the military ouster of former president Mohamed Morsi. They also designated the group as a “terrorist organisation” on 25 December, 2013.
