Report: Egypt thwarts plan to assassinate Haniyeh

Aug. 27, 2011 2:02 P.M. (Updated: Aug. 27, 2011 8:10 P.M.)
CAIRO (Ma'an) -- Palestinian sources say Egypt managed to stop Israel from following through on a plan to assassinate Ismail Haniyeh, the prime minister in Gaza, Egyptian media reported Saturday.

Egypt's Al-Ahram daily quoted Palestinian sources as saying Israel's plan, approved in the wake of last Thursday's deadly attacks in Eilat, was aborted after Egypt pressured Israel to back down.

The report did not specify how Egypt pressured Israel, although media in both countries have reported over the past week that Cairo took an active role in calming tensions between the Israelis and factions in Gaza.
