JERUSALEM,Â Aug 16, 2013Â (AFP)
Hundreds of Hamas supporters rallied onÂ Friday at Jerusalem’s Al-Aqsa mosque compound in protest against Abdel FattahÂ al-Sisi, the army chief who ousted Egypt’s Islamist president Mohamed Morsi.
Some 600 people affiliated with the Palestinian Islamist movement thatÂ rules the Gaza Strip held the demonstration afterÂ FridayÂ prayers, an AFPÂ correspondent said.
They also conducted a special prayer for the hundreds of Morsi supportersÂ killedÂ on WednesdayÂ when security forces dispersed Cairo protest camps set upÂ by Morsi’s Muslim Brotherhood supporters.
The demonstrators, who held posters commemorating the dead, called Sisi anÂ ”American collaborator” who served Israel and chanted that Morsi was stillÂ Egypt’s president.
Some compared Sisi to Hitler, who they said “killed Jews for his people,”Â while the Egyptian army chief “killed his people for the Jews”.
Other Islamist movements also took part in the demonstration, with IsraeliÂ police not intervening.
A large rally in support of Morsi was being planned by the northern factionÂ of the Israeli Islamic Movement forÂ SaturdayÂ afternoon.
