Fatah Rep. Estimates Israel Will Join Cairo Talks Soon


Fatah’s representative for ceasefire talks in Cairo, Azzam al-Ahmad, said that he estimates that Israel will join negotiations in Egypt over the next few days. Al-Ahmad further stated that there is agreement that “The matter of the management of the Rafah Border Crossing is a matter between Egypt and the Palestinian Authority and Israel has no bearing on it.”

Members of the Palestinian Authority’s Ramallah Envoy arrived in Cairo on Saturday. Hamas and Qatari representatives are slated to arrive later on Sunday, as well as the US Middle East Envoy.
