Solidarity action at Egyptian football match

"At a league match in Ismailia, about 75 miles (120 kilometers) east of Cairo, players from Cairo's Al Ahly and the home team, Ismaili, walked onto the field wearing white shirts with the words "Gaza is in our hearts" spelled in red letters.

The packed crowd of about 20,000 chanted, "We sacrifice our soul and our blood to you, Palestine."

Fans and players also observed a moment of silence before the game to honor the Palestinians killed in Gaza since the 8-day offensive began."
