Egyptian military says room for all, but demands end to violence
Addressing the current unrest, Egypt army chief General Abdel Fattah al-Sisi went on state TV Sunday to say there was room for people of all political and religious persuasions to live together in Egypt.
But he also warned the military would not be silent in the face of violence.
"The will of the Egyptian people is free and they can choose whoever they want to rule them. The army and the police right now are the guardians of the will of the people."
Some welcomed the statement, saying violence should not be tolerated within the country.
"To be honest what he is saying is correct. We reject violence whether it is on one side or the other. Egyptians are the ones dying and further bloodshed should be forbidden."
Supporters of deposed President Morsy and those protesting the military coup are faced with growing uncertainty as more leaders of Morsy's Muslim Brotherhood are arrested by the day.
The army enforced a dawn-to-dusk curfew in the Egyptian capital Cairo on Sunday with soldiers standing by in armored vehicles and manned checkpoints.
The military unseated Morsy on July 3rd after millions of Egyptians took to the streets to demand that he step down as he failed to show commitment to democracy.
More than 8-hundred-thirty people have been killed in Egypt since security forces forcibly broke up two pro-Morsy protest camps in Cairo last Wednesday.
