Conflicting reports on ceasefire talks in Cairo

Conflicting reports in the Israeli media quote Egyptian and Hamas officials saying that Israeli envoys are expected in Cairo for another round of ceasefire talks this evening. A senior Israeli official says that Jerusalem has no intention to renew ceasefire talks in Cairo on Saturday night, so long as rockets are being fired into Israeli territory.

At least 24 rockets have hit Israel since midnight, and the IDF has struck 100 targets in the Gaza Strip.

Egyptian media says Israel is also negotiating for the return of the bodies of Oron Shaul and Hadar Goldin, in return for freeing Hamas captives from the past few weeks. There is no confirmation of these reports.
