An Egyptian delegation arrives in Gaza to discuss of the truce


A Palestinian government source reported that a delegation from the Egyptian intelligence service was arriving in the Gaza Strip later Friday.

And in his third visit since the end of the Israeli aggression on the Gaza Strip a week ago.


The source said, preferring not to be named, that “the next delegation to Gaza will be headed by Major General Ahmed Abdel Khaleq, responsible for the Palestinian file in the Egyptian General Intelligence.”

According to the source, “the visit comes in the context of efforts to stabilize the calm and cease-fire between the Palestinian resistance factions and Israel.”

This is the third visit by an Egyptian delegation to Gaza since the cease-fire in the Strip, as the first visit took place on May 21, and the second on the 23rd of the same month.

On both visits, the Egyptian delegation held meetings with Hamas, which runs the Strip, and discussed together several files, most notably the stabilization of the ceasefire and the reconstruction of Gaza.


On April 13th, the situation in the Palestinian territories exploded as a result of “brutal” attacks perpetrated by Israeli police and settlers in the occupied city of Jerusalem.

Especially the Al-Aqsa Mosque and the Sheikh Jarrah neighborhood, in an attempt to evacuate 12 Palestinian homes and hand them over to settlers.
