An Egyptian military spokesman recently posted on Facebook that the army is not taking sides between supporters of President Mohammed Morsi and protesters.
“Our army is seeking to secure all Egyptians, regardless of their affiliations. We call on local and international media not to spread any inaccurate information that may drive a wedge between the army and the people,” the statement read, according to Al Jazeera.
