'The continuation of the conflict between different political forces and their disagreement on running the affairs of the country may lead to the collapse of the state and threatens the future of the coming generations,' said Gen. Abdul-Fattah al-Sisi, who also serves as Defense minister.

Sisi, quoted on the army's Facebook page, also said an attempt to influence the stability of the state institutions 'is a dangerous matter that harms Egyptian national security,' The New York Times reported.
