Hamas officials head to Cairo in Egyptian bid to reduce tensions with Israel

As tensions rise between Israel and Gaza amid a flurry of rocket attacks and mutual threats, Egyptian officials invite Hamas leaders to Cairo for talks aimed at restoring calm, the Kan public broadcaster reports.

Two top Hamas officials, Rawhi Mushtaha and Tawfik Abu Naim, are to lead the delegation, which is slated to leave Gaza today, Kan says.

A delegation from the Islamic Jihad terror group is expected to head to Cairo in the coming days as well.
