Egypt working to mediate ceasefire between Israel, Gaza terror groups – report

Egyptian mediators are working to broker a ceasefire between Israel and the Gaza terror groups after nearly two days of escalating violence, Channel 12 news says.

However, according to analysts at the outlet, Israel is not interested in ending the fighting until certain military goals are achieved.

According to the Gaza Health Ministry, 35 Palestinians have died since Monday night, and 233 have been wounded. Israel says many of those killed were terrorists.

A man and his daughter were killed overnight in a rocket strike outside Lod. Their deaths, and that of a woman in a rocket attack on Rishon Lezion earlier overnight, brought the Israeli death toll to five since the start of the hostilities. Dozens of Israelis have been wounded in the violence.
