Egyptian officers warned Palestinians on Tuesday night that Israel could reenter the Gaza Strip if they did not stop firing rockets into Israeli territory, Israel Radio reported on Wednesday morning.
Head of Egypt's security delegation to the Gaza Strip, General Burhan Hamad, met with Palestinian faction heads including the Islamic Jihad and the Popular Resistance Committees in Gaza in an effort to restore calm in the region.
The meeting followed a barrage of more than 10 Kassam rockets and 20 mortar shells on the Negev Tuesday morning.
Talks were scheduled to continue on Wednesday.
