Long live Egypt and long live Palestine.. I heard it as a chant coming from the heart of every Egyptian, and I saw it as behavior materialized in reality and embodied in more than 500 trucks moving along the road from Cairo to Rafah carrying aid and answering the call of duty. I felt happy while seeing the festival of loyalty, embodying the Egyptian responsibility towards the Palestinian authority, people, and resistance that reject forced displacement amid all the methods of oppression practiced by the Zionist state of aggression and racism, the Palestinians are writing through their steadfastness a story of sacrifice for the sake of the homeland.

Long live Egypt and long live Palestine.. chants that made me feel proud especially when President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi gave the green sign for the Egyptian convoys to move carrying relief materials for our people in Palestine amid the start of the four-day truce, which the president made great efforts to complete, and without this effort the truce would not have occurred, and for this reason the Russians and Americans thanked him. He received calls from President Biden, President Putin, many world presidents, and all of the Palestinians.

A great stance that made me feel pride in what Egypt has done over the past days and since the first day of the fierce war launched by Israel against our steadfast people in Gaza, the war against innocent civilians, and the bombing of hospitals and schools.

Egypt's honorable, firm and decisive stance made it gain the respect of the entire international community... In addition to the cohesion of the President's political and humanitarian efforts from the first day until he reached the  truce, and the President's speech in which he spoke about the efforts made by Egypt to deescalate the war and the dangerous curve facing the Palestinian issue and his declaration that the priority now is to stop the fighting and deliver the aid. As the President said in his speech: “We all feel our people in Palestine, and espite our difficult circumstances, the amount of aid provided by Egypt compared to what was entered ranges between 75% and 80%."

President Sisi’s messages to the world from Cairo Stadium confirmed that the Rafah crossing border was never closed and that the displacement of Palestinians from Gaza to Egypt is a red line while the approach of collective punishment and committing massacres is a mean that leads to liquidating the issue and seizing the land.

What is happening in Gaza is a shame to all of humanity. Stray bullets did not differentiate between a child, a woman, or an old man, but Egypt is continuing to preserve the rights of the Palestinian people.
