Britain and Germany both said Hamas bears the brunt of the blame and should stop firing rockets immediately. But Egyptian President Mohammed Mursi sent Prime Minister Hisham Qandil to the territory for a three-hour visit on Friday to show solidarity with the Palestinians. "Egypt will not leave Gaza on its own, and what is happening is a blatant aggression against humanity," the president said shortly after Mr Qandil returned from Gaza. Ties between Hamas and Egypt have strengthened since Mr Mursi's election earlier this year. Hamas was formed as an offshoot of the Muslim Brotherhood, to which Mr Mursi belongs.
