Crucial 48 hours as Gaza awaits truce

Aug. 16, 2018 1:59 P.M. (Updated: Aug. 20, 2018 12:53 P.M.)
BETHLEHEM (Ma'an) -- Lebanese news channel Al Mayadeen reported on Thursday that the coming 48 hours will be crucial regarding the awaited truce between Israel and Palestinian factions in the Gaza Strip.

Sources told Al Mayadeen that Head of the Egyptian Intelligence, Abbas Kamel, arrived into Israeli Tel Aviv on Wednesday evening heading an Egyptian security delegation to finalize a one-year ceasefire agreement with Israel before Friday.

Israeli official TV channel reported that Kamel might be visiting Ramallah City in the central West Bank in an attempt to convince Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas to "bless" or praise the truce.

Al Mayadeen added that a Fatah movement delegation would not be taking part in coming talks in the Egyptian capital, Cairo, for multiple reasons.

Reports also included that Qatar would be paying the salaries of officials in the Gaza Strip together with Egypt, in addition to paying electricity bills of Gaza in cooperation with Israel.

The deal would also be including a maritime route between the Gaza Strip and Cyprus under Israeli supervision.
