A Suez military court sentenced six Morsi supporters earlier Sunday to three years in jail for incitement and participation in Suez City violence.

The six were convicted of violence in Suez following the dispersal of two Islamist sits-ins in August. They were also convicted of attacking army forces in the city.

The military court also acquitted one Morsi supporter in the same case.

Violent clashes in the city of Suez following the 14 August dispersals of Rabaa and Nahda Square sit-ins resulted in the torching of five armed forces VPCs and three churches, as well as a Coptic school.

This is not the first time that Morsi supporters have undergone military trials in the city of Suez.

In September, a military court sentenced one member of the Brotherhood to life in jail, and gave 50 others sentences on charges of attacking military soldiers.

In the same month, Brotherhood leader Mohamed Mongey was sentenced by a military court in Suez to ten years in prison on charges of inciting violence and vandalising military property in August.
