The Freedom and Justice Party (FJP) has issued a statement condemning the Israeli attack on Gaza Wednesday that resulted in the death of at least seven Palestinians, including Hamas leading figure Ahmed Al-Jaabari.
“The Freedom and Justice Party condemns the Israeli assassination operation targeting late commander Ahmed Al-Jaabari on Wednesday by the IDF (Israeli army). It is a crime that needs a quick Arab and international move to stop the massacres against the besieged Palestinian people,” the political arm of the Muslim Brotherhood group said in its statement, presenting its condolences to Hamas and its militant branch, the Ezzedine Al-Qassam Brigades.
Saad El-Katatni, the FJP's leader, posted on his Twitter account that the Israeli attack on Gaza means that Israel has not yet realised that Egypt has changed and that the Egyptian people who revolted against injustice will not accept the aggression against Gaza.
In statements to Al-Jazeera TV channel, Essam El-Erian, a leading member of the Muslim Brotherhood and deputy president of the FJP, demanded Egypt summon the Egyptian ambassador to Israel for talks in Cairo and that the Arab League hold an emergency meeting.
