Organizers of the "Tamarod" (Rebel) campaign who were behind the demonstrations that toppled Islamist President Mohamed Mursi have denounced the violence that took place by the Republican Guard’s headquarters. 

It said that the violence, which left over 50 people dead on Monday, is an example of armed struggle that leaves room for foreign intervention. 

The June 30 Front said in a statement on Tuesday that the struggle is ongoing, adding that using victims and deaths to gain the sympathy of society and the international community is delaying the democratic transition. 

The Front praised the army’s performance, saying that it has dealt with protests with wisdom and self-restraint without attacks or harassment. 

It called for the prosecution of all those who participated in recent violence, immediate investigations into the events and the dissolution of political parties based on religious ideas. 

It stressed the importance of speeding up the formation of a national coalition government to end the crises facing the country.
