An Israeli orchestra has performed in Egypt for the first time in 40 years, surprising locals by playing Egyptian classics from the 50s and 60s.

Taking to social media, some Egyptians and others from the Arab world called the performance a “betrayal.”

“The treacherous Egyptian regime led by [Abdel-Fattah] el-Sissi is opening its gates to the Israeli occupation,” one user said in a tweet.
