Egyptian President Mohamed Morsi on Wednesday said Egypt will "never accept any
assault on the Palestinian people" and will stand by them in their struggle,

will never accept any assault or siege on the Palestinian people. Egypt provides
Palestine with all its needs such as food and clothing."
Morsi added: "We do not declare war on anyone. Palestinian rights
will not be lost, we are in the same trench with our kin [Palestinians] against
any aggression toward them," he said.

their pains are our pains."
