Egypt recalls envoy to Israel after Gaza strike

Egypt has recalled its ambassador to Israel after an Israeli airstrike killed the military commander of Gaza’s ruling Hamas.

In a statement read on state TV late Wednesday, spokesman Yasser Ali said that President Mohammed Morsi recalled the ambassador and asked the Arab League’s Secretary General to convene an emergency ministerial meeting in the wake of the Gaza violence.

Morsi also called for an immediate cease fire between Israel and Hamas, an offshoot of Morsi’s Muslim Brotherhood. Israel says it struck in response to rocket attacks from Gaza.

Hours earlier, Morsi’s Muslim Brotherhood group denounced the Israeli airstrike as a ‘‘crime that requires a quick Arab and international response to stem these massacres.’’
