Egypt worked throughout Wednesday night to try and achieve a ceasefire between Hamas and Israel in the recent round of fire, Israel national news reported early Thursday morning.

Over 100 Hamas rockets were fired at southern Israel since Wednesday evening, in response to which the IDF carried out over 100 strikes at Hamas terror targets, according to the IDF Spokesperson.

Palestinian newspaper Donia al-Watan commented that no understanding had yet been reached in the Egyptian efforts.

A Palestinian official confirmed that UN Special Coordinator for the Middle East Peace Process Nickolay Mladenov was involved in the attempts to restore calm.
