The National Salvation Front (NSF) said millions would take to the streets in Friday demonstrations against terrorism and in support of the roadmap put in place for a constitution and elections.

The NSF condemned the Muslim Brotherhood for surpassing “red lines” including allegedly attempting to create splits and divisions within the ranks of the army and warning of recreating the Syrian crisis in Egypt.

The NSF also accused the Brotherhood of “silence” when it came to daily killings in Sinai and other areas, something the NSF called terrorist attacks, and said the Brotherhood’s lack of a stance on such issues demonstrated its disregard.

The statement from the group called on people to ensure turnout exceeded that of 30 June.

Tamarod and the June 30 Front also announced their participation in Friday demonstrations during a Thursday press conference in which Mohamed Abdel Aziz, a co-founder of the movements, called for the expulsion of the US ambassador, Anne Patterson.

Abdel Aziz called on people to demonstrate at the Itihadiya Palace and Tahrir Square on Friday and in all squares and provinces, to support the armed forces in its war against terrorism.

He said the demonstrations were to deliver the goals of the revolution, which include “bread, freedom, social justice and national independence.”
