Egypt’s President Abdel Fattah el-Sissi expresses hope that there may be a deal reached soon for a ceasefire in the Gaza Strip, where Israel is battling the Hamas terror group.

“We hope that in the coming days we will reach a ceasefire and that there will be real relief for the people of Gaza,” he says, according to the Ynet news site.

The comments come amid hopes an agreement could be reached between Israel and Hamas that would see a temporary ceasefire and the release of hostages held by terrorists in Gaza.
