Egypt recalled its ambassador from Israel on Wednesday after Israeli strikes on the Gaza Strip¬†killed Hamas’s top military commander¬†and at least six other Palestinians, presidential spokesman Yasser Ali said.

“President Mohamed Morsi has followed the Israeli brutal assault in which a number of martyrs and sons of the Palestinian people were killed,” Yasser Ali said in a statement on television and on his Facebook website.

“On this basis he has recalled the Egyptian ambassador from Israel; has ordered the Egyptian representative at the United Nations to call for an emergency meeting at the Security Council … and summoned the Israeli ambassador in Egypt in protest over the assault,” the statement added.

On Wednesday night, a spokesman for Morsi said the Egyptian president had paid his condolences to the Palestinians killed in the air strikes.
