In Alexandria on Friday people angered by the recent killing of three Egyptian security personnel by Israelis protested to call for the expulsion of the Israeli Embassy and the halting of Egyptian gas exports to Israel.
Around 150 members of the Jama’a al-Islamiya gathered in Mahatet al-Rammel after the taraweeh (Ramadan evening prayer) and marched to the Unknown Soldier Memorial. They called for jihad against Israel and raised banners reading, “The people want to kick out the ambassador”, “The people want gas exports to Israel stopped,” and “Open the door to jihad, to Jerusalem we will head, martyrs in the millions.”
Waleed Abdel Latif, a Jama’a al-Islamiya member, said, “When the Israeli Air Force kills our sons, we should no longer stand watching or supply them with the gas they use to kill us.”
He also added that Egypt should sever relations with Israel and expel its ambassador.
Dozens also protested on Friday in front of the Chamber of Commerce against the killings. They called for a swift and firm response.
They chanted, “Oh Palestinian, your blood is my blood; your religion is my religion… Oh Zionist, tomorrow Egyptians will dig your grave."
