The Muslim Brotherhood have called for a protest next Friday to denounce the recent Israeli attacks on the Gaza Strip.

"The group voices its support for the Palestinian resistance, and is furious about the Zionist attacks," read the statement.

Over the past three days, the Israeli army has attacked the coastal enclave, killing seven Palestinians, allegedly including two militants and two minors. Israel claimed the strikes were in response to an anti-tank missile fired by militants at an Israeli jeep earlier this week.

The statement further called on Arab and Muslim leaders "to play their role in supporting the Palestinian cause and to help stop the bloodshed."

"What is happening in Gaza is a violation of international law and exposes the lies of the claimed Zionist peace," added the statement.

Since 2007, Gaza has been ruled by the government of Hamas, an offshoot of the Muslim Brotherhood.

On Monday, dozens of protesters gathered at Talaat Harb Square to protest the attacks. The protest was called for by various political groups, including the Egyptian Popular Current of Nasserist Hamdeen Sabbahi.
