In Egypt: Thousands hold anti-Israel, U.S. demonstrations
Some 3,000 Egyptians protested against the recent Israeli raid on Syria and the U.S. occupation in Iraq, gathering after Friday prayers at the Al-Azhar mosque, according to a police source.
Worshippers assembled within the mosque in central Cairo, chanting slogans vilifying Israel and the U.S., the source added.
The demonstrators slammed the "barbaric" Israeli raid launched Saturday night on Syrian soil, according to MENA news agency.
Moreover, protesters urged Arab leaders to adopt a "unified position" vis-a-vis "Israeli aggression" against Syria and the "American occupation" in Iraq, the police source further said. (Albawaba.com)
