Cairo, Aug 7 IANS | 5 months ago

An Israeli delegation Thursday arrived in Cairo to continue negotiations with Palestine on the Gaza truce.

Security sources said the delegation consists of three Israeli negotiators who arrived on board a private plane, MENA reported.

The negotiations are expected to reach a long-term truce agreement.

Egypt is mediating indirect discussions between Israel and Palestinian factions, including the Hamas movement, to reach a long-term ceasefire to end a bloody conflict following a 72-hour truce.

Egypt has urged both sides to extend the ceasefire in a bid to address issues more effectively.

The near month-long violence has killed around 1,900 Palestinians and 67 Israelis, including 64 soldiers.
