Egypt has seen further deadly violence on Friday. The Muslim Brotherhood had called for mass protests dubbed the "Day of Rage."
A Cairo court has sentenced 75 people to death over their involvement in a 2013 sit-in protest in support of the now-banned Muslim Brotherhood. At least 600 people were killed when security forces broke up the protest.
Four decades ago, Israeli and Egyptian leaders managed to end years of hostilities with the help of a US president. Their experiences with the horrors of violence led them to find peace in a broken region.
In August 2013, more than 800 protesters were killed in Cairo's Rabaa Square during a brutal security operation. Human Rights Watch has called for an investigation into what it believes were crimes against humanity.
Muslim Brotherhood members were among those on trial for their roles in an anti-government sit-in five years ago. The convicted are supporters of the former Islamist president, Mohamed Morsi.
