Egypt to Host Talks Aimed at Ceasefire in Gaza

Egypt is preparing to facilitate a new round of indirect discussions between representatives from Israel and the Palestinian Hamas movement, with the goal of achieving a ceasefire in Gaza. This initiative comes shortly after the United Nations Security Council passed a resolution urging an immediate halt to the violence.

In Cairo, the foreign ministers of Egypt, Jordan, and France met and jointly called for an urgent and lasting ceasefire in Gaza. Israel has confirmed its participation in the talks, which are scheduled to take place on Sunday. However, Hamas has indicated that its involvement will depend on the outcome of discussions between Cairo and Israel.

France's Foreign Minister, Stephane Sejourne, announced plans to propose a draft resolution at the UN Security Council, outlining a political settlement for the Israeli-Palestinian conflict based on the two-state solution. He emphasized the need to address the ongoing tragedy in Gaza and its impact on both Palestinian civilians and Israeli security.

Jordan's Foreign Minister, Ayman Safadi, condemned Israel's aggression in Gaza and called for accountability, urging the international community to take decisive action to halt the violence.

Egypt's Foreign Minister, Sameh Shoukry, emphasized the dire humanitarian situation in Gaza and called on Israel to open its land crossings to allow for the delivery of much-needed aid.

Hamas has indicated that any agreement must include an end to the war and the full withdrawal of Israeli forces from Gaza. However, Israel has rejected these terms, insisting on continued military operations until Hamas is defeated.

The international community has expressed concern over Israel's plans for a potential ground invasion in southern Gaza, fearing further humanitarian consequences.

The conflict, which began on October 7, has resulted in a significant loss of life and widespread destruction in Gaza. Despite months of fighting, neither side has achieved its objectives, leading to continued suffering for Palestinian civilians and ongoing diplomatic efforts to secure a ceasefire.
