The Palestinian Information Centre -  10 April 2011

The Palestinian Ministry of Foreign Affairs has lauded Egypt for helping to protect the Palestinians during the recent Israeli aggression against the Gaza Strip.

Egypt has demanded an end to Israeli violence and restoration of  calm in the region, the ministry confirmed in a statement on Sunday.

”The massacres perpetrated by the [Israeli occupier] in Gaza call for a serious stand from the Arab and Islamic nation at the leadership and popular levels so as to ensure an end to the aggression and expose the [Israeli occupier's] practices,” the statement says.

The ministry said it has mobilized from the first moments of aggression to reveal the seriousness of the situation to the world and create a high-profile political movement in order to curb the attack.

Meanwhile, more than ten thousand students at the esteemed Al-Azhar University in Cairo have taken to the streets to condemn the massacre of the Palestinians in the Gaza Strip.

Organized by students from the Muslim Brotherhood, the demonstrators waived Palestinian flags next to Egyptian ones and roared several pro-Palestinian phrases that shook Nasr city, which runs along university city where they marched.

Events ended at midnight Saturday after they prayed in congregation for those who have died in Gaza and in the January 25 revolution and for the defeat of Israel.
