November 15, 2012 14:54

The Muslim Brotherhood on Thursday called on Egypt's government to sever diplomatic relation with Israel over what it described as ongoing Israeli "crimes" in Gaza, according to Egypt Independent.

The group reportedly also reiterated its calls for anti-Israel protests nationwide on Thursday afternoon and for a rally at Al-Azhar Mosque following Friday prayers.

In a press release, cited by Egypt Independent, the Brotherhood criticized US support for Israel and blamed Arab countries for "doing nothing while watching the bloodshed in Palestine."

The Brotherhood concluded by urging the Palestinian Authority to halt security cooperation with the Israeli army and to release Hamas and Islamic Jihad prisoners.
