Haniyeh in Cairo to Complain About Israel


Hamas head in Gaza Ismail Haniyeh is in Cairo Sunday to meet with Egyptian leaders, AFP reports. A spokesman says Haniyeh plans to discuss “Israeli violations of the truce” that ended a round of attacks and airstrikes in late 2012, and Hamas’ demand that Israel release terrorists held in its prisons.

Haniyeh is also expected to try to smooth tensions in wake of Egypt’s claim that Hamas was involved in a deadly attack on its troops in Sinai.
