An Egyptian security delegation is trying in coordination with Qatar and the US to reactivate talks to reach a truce in Gaza and release hostages, Egypt’s state-affiliated Al-Qahera News TV channel says, citing a senior official.

The official is quoted as saying that Egypt had told all concerned parties that efforts to revive the talks had been undermined by Israel’s ongoing ground operation on Rafah in southern Gaza, which had brought “dire consequences.”
