The Egyptian government on Monday proposed a ceasefire between Israel and the Palestinian groups in the Gaza Strip according to which the two sides would end “hostilities” as of 9:00 a.m. on Tuesday.

The proposal, which was published on the eve of US Secretary of State John Kerry’s visit to Cairo, states that Israel would end all “hostilities in the Gaza Strip from the land, air and sea and would refrain from launching a ground offensive that targets civilians.

According to the proposal, the Palestinian factions in would cease all “hostilities” emanating from the Gaza Strip against Israel.

The Egyptian initiative calls for the reopening of the border crossings into the Gaza Strip to passengers and goods as the security situation becomes stable.

The proposal calls for receiving representatives of the Israeli government and the Palestinian factions in Cairo within 48 hours after the ceasefire goes into effect to discuss “confidence-building measures” between the two sides. The Egyptians, according to the plan, would hold separate talks with the Israelis and Palestinians in Cairo.
