The Salafi Front has renewed threats of an “Islamic revolution” during Islamist protests planned for 28 November, stressing they are ready with a plan to take on security forces.
“We will not allow Interior Ministry's men to disperse the protests like they did with the sit-in in Rabaa al-Adaweya,” Mohamed Galal, spokesperson of the group, a breakaway group from the mainstream, pro-regime Salafi Daawa, said in a statement.
He was referring to the major Muslim Brotherhood-led sit-in staged after former president Mohamed Morsy’s ouster, in which hundreds of protesters and policemen died during the dispersal in August 2013.
The front is a member of the banned National Alliance to Suport Legitimacy that has led protests demanding the reinstatement of Morsy.
“We will hoist Mushafs (Muslims’ holy book) at all streets, and we have the ability to defend ourselves against security forces,” Galal maintained.
