Egypt condemned on Friday the "excessive use of force" by "Israeli occupation forces" after clashes in the Gaza Strip left at least six Palestinians killed and wounded scores on Friday.

"Egypt demands that Israel as an occupation force provides the necessary protection for the Palestinian people. They should also stop the repetetive attacks that only lead to more tension for the Palestinian people, and therefore waste chances after chances of succeeding in the attempts to resume negotiations between both Palestinian and Israeli sides," an official statement by the foreign ministry read.

The clashes came as Hamas' chief in Gaza called the violence that has hit the occupied West Bank and annexed east Jerusalem an intifada, or uprising, and urged further unrest.

Gaza has been the site of three Israeli offensives since 2008, but had remained mainly calm amid the recent unrest in the West Bank and occupied east Jerusalem on Friday.

Genocidal massacre of Palestinians in their own land
A very good book that catalogues Zionist war crimes is called "The ethnic cleansing of Palestine" written by a leading historian called Ilan Pappe. He holds the chair of history at the University of Exeter. He records countless massacres and details all the ethnic cleansing as well as Plan Dalet which was the Zionist plan to steal the whole of Palestine. What the Zionists did not manage to steal in 1948, they went on to steal in 1967 by a sneak attack on the Egyptian air force. Another good source of information is Miko Peled, who grew up as the son of an Israeli Major General. It is just as well to ignore the liars who write lies for the Israeli gangsters. These lies are called "hasbara" which means "explanation" and is used to give cover to the Zionist murderers, thieves and liars.
