Two Islamist parties, the Islamist Nahda Party and Ryada Party, have announced their participation in Friday’s demonstration to demand the deportation of the Israeli ambassador and cutting gas exports to Israel.
The Freedom and Justice Party and Egyptian Trend Party, meanwhile, say they are still considering the matter, while Jama’a al-Islamiya says that it will not take part.
The number of demonstrators before the Israeli Embassy dwindled on Wednesday evening, as protests continued for the fifth day to demand the cutting of diplomatic relations with Israel. They clashed with other groups who tried to disperse them.
The armed forces have reduced their troops before the embassy, while police numbers have increased.
The Ministry of Religious Endowments denied that Molotov Cocktails were found in a mosque near the embassy, and closed the mosque except during prayer time.
