Amid rumors that Egypt is planning to send home the Israeli ambassador to Cairo, Minister of Foreign Affairs Mohamed Amr issued a statement Wednesday evening, condemning the Israeli air strikes in Gaza and demanding the strikes to end immediately, according to Al Ahram.

This has been the first official Egyptian response to the assassination of Hamas military chief of staff Ahmed al-Jaabari, Amr said the Israeli military escalation in Gaza occurs “at a very critical time in the Middle East.”
