Egypt urges Israel, Palestinians to hold truce talks
Egypt Saturday urged Israel and the Palestinians to accept an indefinite ceasefire proposal and resume truce talks over the conflict in the Gaza Strip.
"Egypt invites the concerned parties to accept an indefinite ceasefire, and resume indirect negotiations in Cairo to clinch an agreement on the presented issues, aiming to put an end to the bloodshed of the Palestinian people, achieve their interests and protect their legitimate rights," Xinhua quoted an Egyptian foreign ministry statement as saying.
Egypt also warned against the ongoing military escalation against the restive coastal enclave that causes the Gazans "great human and materialistic losses".
The ongoing Israel offensive on Gaza, which started July 8, has left more than 2,000 Palestinians killed and 10,500 wounded, while Hamas attacks killed 64 Israeli soldiers and four civilians.
