The leader of Egypt's armed forces declared on Wednesday that peace is not guaranteed, and that Egypt's army must remain vigilant and ready for combat, independent Egyptian newspaper Al-Masry Al-Youm reported.

"We shall break whomever approaches us," Field Marshal Hussein Tantawi declared during a five-day military exercise at a military installment between Cairo and the Mediterranean city of Suez, where the army trains armed forces to launch offenses deep in enemy territory, according to the Egyptian newspaper.

The comments echoed remarks the field marshal made last month speaking to troops in Sinai, where he said Egypt would "break the legs" of anyone who approaches the border, in an apparent reference to Israel.
