Private Al-Fajr news website quoted “international intelligence reports published in London” as saying that there are indications that the Egyptian army will take over power again in Egypt soon.
The website, which focuses on investigative and sensationalist news reports, said that all indications and givens “reassure the imminent re-transfer of power to the Egyptian army” which has been ruling Egypt from 1952 to 2011 when President Mubarak was ousted.
“There are monitored moves and efforts inside the military establishment for a coup that ousts the current regime and drives the Muslim Brotherhood away from power,” the website quoted reports as saying.
It further said that such a coup will be welcomed worldwide.
“Decision-making circles worldwide see that the army will restore calm and stability in Egypt after two years of instability,” it said.
“World countries will recognize the army`s power if it is temporary and paves the way to the rule of a retired general who enjoys military`s support as was the case with former presidents: Jamal Abd-al-Nasir, Anwar al-Sadat and Muhammad Husni Mubarak,” it also said.
Al-Fajr news website is affiliated to a paper whose editor-in-chief is Adil Hamudah, a staunch opponent of the Muslim Brotherhood.
