Egypt to send security delegations to monitor Israel-Gaza truce

Two Egyptian security delegations will be sent to monitor a ceasefire deal aimed at bringing an end to 11 days of fighting, diplomatic sources tell AFP.

The delegations will be sent to Tel Aviv and the Palestinian territories to “monitor (the ceasefire’s) implementation and procedures to maintain stable conditions permanently.”

The Egyptian-mediated “simultaneous and mutual ceasefire” is to come into force at 2 a.m. Friday, the sources say, confirming announcements by Israel and Palestinian terror groups.
