Egypt says it is losing patience with Hamas after violent clashes on the Egypt-Gaza border left one border guard dead and dozens of Palestinians injured. “Egypt warned Hamas on Wednesday night that there was a limit to its patience and that any attempt to provoke the Egyptian security forces would claim a price. The Foreign Ministry in Cairo made the announcement following Wednesday’s violent clashes on the Gaza-Egypt border, which left an Egyptian border guard killed by sniper fire and nine policemen injured. Dozens of Palestinians were also hurt in the riots. The violent riots began on Tuesday night at the El-Arish port, after Egyptian authorities refused to allow member of the Viva Palestina international organization to bring all of their aid vehicles into the Gaza Strip. The delegation included international activists calling for an end to the blockade on Gaza, led by British Parliament Member George Galloway and 17 Turkish parliament members. In response, the activists hurled stones and barricaded themselves, taking four policemen with them.”
