Islamic Jihad officials say that Egypt is working to mediate a ceasefire between Israel and the terror group in Gaza.

There is no confirmation from Israel.

Israel’s Kan public broadcast reports that Egypt told Israel that Islamic Jihad is interested in a truce.

The Al-Jazeera network reports that the US and Qatar are also involved in efforts to restore calm.
