Itongadol.- Egyptian troops are preparing to deploy on the streets of Cairo and other cities if necessary to prevent clashes between rival political factions, military sources said on Tuesday.
General Abdel Fattah al-Sisi, the head of the armed forces, gave the Islamist President Mohamed Morsi 48 hours on Monday to end a crisis or face a solution imposed by the military. He said he was responding to demands from millions of protesters who want Morsi to resign.
The sources told Reuters that rapid reaction forces had been ready since last Friday to move quickly to protect demonstrators from attack.
They were wary of militant elements among both Islamists and their opponents, including remnants of the internal security apparatus of Morsi\’s ousted predecessor Hosni Mubarak.
US-built Apache helicopter gunships circled over downtown Cairo on Tuesday afternoon, where thousands of anti-Morsi protesters were gathered on Tahrir Square.Egypt\’s armed forces would suspend the constitution and dissolve an Islamist-dominated parliament under a draft political roadmap to be pursued if Islamist President Mohamed Morsi and the liberal opposition fail to agree by Wednesday, military sources said.
The sources told Reuters the Supreme Council of the Armed Forces (SCAF) was still discussing details and the plan, intended to resolve a political crisis that has brought millions of protesters into the streets, could be changed based on political developments and consultations.
Chief-of-staff General Abdel Fattah El-Sisi called in a statement on Monday for Mursi to agree within 48 hours on power-sharing with other political forces, saying the military would otherwise set out its own road-map for the country\’s future.
