Egypt has been mediating between Israel and Hamas in an effort to stop the escalation in the Gaza Strip, London-based Arabic-language newspaper Al-Hayat reported on Saturday.

According to the report, Egypt delivered a message from Jerusalem to Hamas that Israel was only targeting the elements responsible for the terror attack in Eilat that left eight people dead on Thursday and would stop its strikes on Gaza if rocket fire into Israel stopped.
