Egypt's culture minister called off on Wednesday official celebrations of the New Year in solidarity with Palestinians during Israel operation against Hamas. The minister's office said that state-sponsored events, including a popular concert in the Opera House, were called off because of the attacks on Gaza. The Information Ministry also called off its major event, a concert by famous Lebanese heartthrob singer, Assi Hilani.
