Gaza Hamas supporters protest against Egypt 'terror' ruling

Gaza City (Palestinian Territories) (AFP) - Hundreds of Palestinians demonstrated outside Egypt's diplomatic mission in Gaza City Friday, to protest a Cairo court ruling designating Hamas's armed wing as a terrorist group.

They waved green Hamas flags and chanted in support of the Ezzedine al-Qassam Brigades: "Qassam are the pride of the nation, not terrorists!"

In a sign of worsening relations between the Islamist movement and the Egyptian government, the Egyptian court banned the Brigades Saturday and declared it a terrorist group.
