Channel 2 reports that senior Palestinian Islamic Jihad and Fatah officials are in Cairo to discuss proposals for a ceasefire between Israel and Hamas, along with other armed groups.

The Palestinian factions are working toward a joint proposal they can present to the Egyptians, who will then take it to the UN. If the UN’s Security Council approves the parameters, they will then turn to US Secretary of State John Kerry to help get Netanyahu on board.

There is currently no Israeli delegation in Egypt.
