Palestinians protest against Egypt's military coup

Many Palestinians came together Monday to protest against Egypt's military coup that ousted the country's first democratically elected President Mohammed Morsi.

General Federation of Palestinian Labour Unions brought together a number of Palestinians who voiced their condemnation on the massacres in Egypt and called for the safety of anti-coup protesters. Some deputies also accompanied the demonstrators who carried the flags of Palestine and Egypt.

"With these protests, we show our support for Egyptians who ask for their freedom and right to life," said General Federation of Palestinian Labour Unions Chairman Sami al-Umsi and demanded that Rafah crossing gate between Egypt and Gaza Strip be opened.

Amnesty International Germany office also organised protests in Berlin against Egypt's junta which massacred hundreds of anti-coup protesters.

During the protest held in front of Egypt's embassy in German capital, demonstrators chanted anti-coup slogans reading "Stop the police and soldier violence in Egypt".

Meanwhile, Iraqi Prime Minister Nuri Al-Maliki expressed his concern over the developments in Egypt and called for peace and calm between the sides.

"We wish to see that Egypt finds solutions to the problems via dialogue," said the prime ministry in a statement.
