Egypt moves its embassy from Gaza to Ramallah
In a stark sign of its rejection of Hamas' takeover of the Gaza Strip, Egypt announced it was moving its embassy from Gaza to the West Bank, headquarters of moderate Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas, a foreign ministry statement said Tuesday.

 

A group of Egyptian diplomats had already left for the West Bank town of Ramallah ending a 15-year presence in Gaza. The Egyptian ambassador is due to arrive in Ramallah in the coming days, said the statement. (AP)
