Israeli delegation lands in Cairo, Egyptian report says

The Israeli delegation to ceasefire talks with Hamas mediated by Egypt has landed in Cairo, an Egyptian report says.

According to al-Youm a-Sabaa, the negotiators arrived in the Egyptian capital before the new 72-ceasefire went into effect at midnight tonight.

Israel had pulled its negotiators on Friday after the previous 72-hour truce ended that morning and Hamas resumed rocket fire after refusing to extend the lull. Israel has insisted it will not negotiate while rockets are being lobbed at its cities.
