Defence Minister Tantawi and army Chief of Staff Anan replaced and military-issued constitutional amendments cancelled.
The Egyptian president has ordered the powerful head of the army and defence minister, Field Marshal Hussein Tantawi, and several senior generals into retirement and cancelled constitutional amendments issued by the military restricting presidential powers.
Mohamed Morsi announced through a spokesman on Sunday the dismissal of Tantawi and his appointment as a presidential adviser.
According to state television, Abdul-Fatah al-Sessi would replace Tantawi as defence minister and the general commander of the army.
Lieutenant-General Sidki Sayed Ahmed was named as Anan’s replacement.
Morsi further appointed a senior judge, Mahmoud Mekki, as vice-president. All decisions are effective immediately.
Al Jazeera’s Rawya Rageh, reporting from Cairo, said that would be no exaggeration to say that no one saw this one coming.
“After the June 5 attack on a border patrol left 16 soldiers dead, the country’s leadership – both civilian and in uniform – was peculiarly quiet,” she said.
“Late and terse statements did not quench the public’s thirst for answers.
“But no one thought the price would extend to the head of the military and his deputy.
“After all, both Tantawi and Anan, the two most powerful members of the Supreme Council of the Armed Forces (SCAF), long appeared invincible – both during the period SCAF took control over the country and even after President Morsi’s election in June.”
Besides Tantawi and Anan, Morsi also ordered the retirement of the commanders of the navy, air defence and air force.
The latest moves are seen as escalating the power struggle between Morsi, who took office on June 30, and the military.
In an address to the nation on Sunday evening, Morsi said that his move was not directed at individuals.
“The decisions I took today were not meant ever to target certain persons, nor did I intend to embarrass institutions, nor was my aim to narrow freedoms,” he said.
“I did not mean to send a negative message about anyone, but my aim was the benefit of this nation and its people.”
Morsi praised the work of the armed forces, saying his decision would free them to focus on their professional tasks.
Tantawi was the head of SCAF, which ruled the country after Hosni Mubarak was toppled as president in February 2011.
He was defence minister for nearly two decades under Mubarak.
Morsi, from the Muslim Brotherhood, and his Islamist allies did not hide their displeasure with the amendments issued by the military in mid-June curtailing the president’s role and granting the army massive powers, including legislative control.
Earlier this week, Morsi sacked the head of the intelligence service.
The retired navy commander, Lieutenant-General Mohan Mameesh, was named as chairman of the Suez Canal, the strategic waterway linking the Red Sea and the Mediterranean and a major source of revenues for the country.
Earlier, Al Jazeera’s correspondent, Sherine Tadros, reporting from Cairo, said: “There will be a lot of questions asked, especially if Morsi is able to do this.
“In the coming hours, we will find out how this decision came about. All of this has happened very fast, and it was unexpected.”

CAIRO — Egyptian President Mohammed Morsi has dismissed the chief of the intelligence community.
Morsi, the first civilian president of Egypt, said he retired Maj. Gen. Murad Muwafi in wake of an Islamist attack in the eastern Sinai Peninsula that killed 16 soldiers. Morsi said Muwafi would be replaced by Gen. Mohammed Shehateh.
“Today, the president began to exercise his power,” Essam Al Arian, acting president of the ruling Freedom and Justice Party, said.
But Egyptian sources said Muwafi was dismissed by the ruling Supreme Council of the Armed Forces, led by Defense Minister Hussein Tantawi.
The sources said the council’s decision was prompted by Muwafi’s acknowledgement to the Egyptian media that the intelligence community knew of a plot to attack the Egyptian-Israeli border, but the warning did not proceed through the proper channels.
“We did not imagine that a Muslim would kill his brother during the breaking of the Ramadan fast,” Muwafi, recalling the Aug. 5 attack, said.
The presidential office also said it fired the governor of the North Sinai province, Maj. Gen. Abdul Wahab Mabrouk. The statement did not disclose Mabrouk’s replacement.
This marked the first announcement by Morsi that dealt with military personnel. In July, the ruling military council stripped Morsi of much of his powers.
Officials said Morsi also appointed a new chief of staff, Mohammed El Tahtawi, as well as commander of Cairo security, Mohammed Osama. They did not provide details of the two men.
The president also ordered a reorganization of the Interior Ministry. Egypt’s state-run Nile News said Morsi appointed Maj. Gen. Hamed Zaki to command the Republican Guard, and Maj. Gen. Maged Mustafa Kamel as head of the Central Security Forces.
The sources said the reorganization of Egypt’s security leadership was coordinated with Tantawi. For his part, the defense minister announced the dismissal of Egyptian military police commander Maj. Gen. Hamdi Badeen, a member of the military council.
“These decisions are a message to all officials that Egypt has a president and its people have a will, and that you will be sacked if you do not respect that will,” Al Arian said.
Ahram Online, Sunday 5 Aug 2012
However, the Egyptian state TV claimed that elements of Islamic extremist groups situated in the Sinai peninsula had carried out the attack by iftar (the hour when people have their meal that breaks the fast during Ramadan), but provided no details.
An anonymous Egyptian security official was quoted by Egypt’s state-run news agency, MENA, as saying that Islamist elements who infiltrated Egypt from the Gaza Strip through tunnels are behind the attacks, along with other Islamists situated in the areas of El-Halal Mountain and El-Mahdia in eastern Sinai.
For their side, however, Gaza strip rulers Hamas stressed it has not been involved in the attacks, saying it would never infiltrate Egypt’s borders nor use its weapons against its army in the wake of a deadly attack that left 15 Egyptian soldiers dead on Sunday.
“Hamas has nothing to do with the border tensions. On the contrary, it cares about the Egyptian national security and would never use weapons against the Egyptian army,” the faction’s senior leader Mahmoud Al-Zahar told Ahram Online.
Infuriated at the incident, hundreds of Rafah residents (on the Egyptian side of the Egypt-Gaza border) gathered at the Sadat Square and blocked the road, preventing trucks heading to the port of Rafah and tunnels leading to the Gaza Strip.
Some of the protesters told Al-Ahram’s Arabic news portal that they refuse seeing the Egyptian army insulted, and that they would sacrifice their blood “to defend the Egyptian soldiers.”
The site also reported that hundreds more headed to the Arish hospital, where the injured soldiers were admitted, to donate blood.
Back in Cairo, according to Egypt’s health ministry, at least 15 Egyptian soldiers were killed and seven injured in the explosion that went off at a military zone on Sunday, near the city of Rafah, according to Al-Ahram Arabic-language news portal.
Later on, Egyptian state TV reported the death toll has risen to 16.
Ahmed El-Ansari, vice-president of the health ministry-affiliated Egyptian Ambulance Organisation, said that those injured in Sunday’s attacks near Egypt’s border with the Gaza Strip had been rushed to a hospital in the nearby city of Al-Arish.
According to state news agency MENA, El-Ansari also said that the injured had suffered bullets wounds to the head, chest and arms.
Egyptian President Mohamed Morsi has held an emergency meeting with the Supreme Council of the Armed Forces (SCAF), the chief of intelligence, and the interior minister to discuss the deadly attacks.
“The martyrs’ blood will not be in vain… Orders were given to the armed forces to take strict measures to impose full control on Sinai,” Morsi told Egyptian state TV after the meeting.
“Those who did this will be punished, everyone will see how the new procedures will be like,” he added.
Egypt’s presidential office echoed the same sentiments, stated that those responsible for the attacks on Egyptian border guard in Sinai will be punished for their actions as their crime will not be tolerated.
“The security apparatuses are working in full power to reveal the identities of the culprits of the attacks executed in Rafah soon,” presidential office spokesman Yasser Ali told Egyptian state TV.
The Admin of the Official Page of the Supreme Council of the Armed Forces published a more strong-worded statement, vowing that the death of Egyptian soldiers will be avenged.
“Those are religion-less and infidels; the days have proven that only force will stop them. Anyone who has harmed our armed forces will pay the price,” read the post on the page, which was titled “We swear to God that we will avenge.”
Since Egypt’s 2011 uprising the country has witnessed what many describe as a security vaccum, with Sinai seen as particularly lawless. Observers point to a spate of kidnappings and the fact that a gas pipeline leading to Israel and Jordan has been blown up 15 times to show that the governorate is out of control. Meanwhile, dissenting voices suggest that it is not security measures that are required but policies that address the marginalisation of Sinai that long predates the January 25 Revolution.
