An Egyptian plan for a long-term cease-fire between Israel and Palestinian factions  in Gaza has gained the support of a strong international contingent, including UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon, according to a Sunday report in pan-Arab daily Al-Hayat.

The United States has also become involved in the talks, agreeing to serve as a guarantor that Israel will uphold what has been agreed to thus far in Egypt, the report added.

The paper quoted the head of the Palestinian delegation to negotiations in Cairo, Fatah's Azzam al-Ahmed, as saying that an international conference for the reconstruction of Gaza following Operation Protective Edge will be held in September, with the participation of international agencies and donors.
