Egyptian ceasefire proposal includes PA control of Philadelphi Route — report

The head of Egypt’s military intelligence is working to solidify a ceasefire deal with Palestinian factions, Ynet reports, and according to the proposal the Philadelphi Route, which runs near the border between Egypt and Gaza, will be handed over to Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas’s men.

Under the proposed arrangement, Egypt would control its side of the border and monitor for tunnels, while the PA’s security forces would control the opposite side, and under these conditions Cairo would agree to open the Rafah border crossing.

According to the Ynet report, the proposal is likely to be accepted by Abbas’s people.
