Report: Egypt working to restore ceasefire in Gaza

Egypt is working to restore calm in the Gaza Strip and southern Israel after violence escalated following an IDF hit on a prominent Gazan terrorist, Ma'an News Agency reported Thursday.
Egyptian ambassador to the Palestinian Territories Yasser Othman told Ma'an that "Egypt is trying to stop Israeli violations and attacks and reinstate a ceasefire, which Israel annulled today when it assassinated Essam and Sobhi Batash."
Othman said Egypt was "completely opposed to Israeli violations and operations in the Gaza Strip," according to Ma'an.
He also said that Cairo was in contact with all the relevant parties in order to prevent a deterioration in the situation in Gaza, and to protect the Palestinian people's rights.
