Abbas and Sisi Discuss Situation in Gaza
Palestinian Authority (PA) Chairman Mahmoud Abbas spoke on Tuesday evening with Egypt’s President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi, the WAFA news agency reported.
According to the report, Abbas and Sisi spoke about “the dangerous Israeli escalation against the Gaza Strip”.
Sisi reportedly expressed Egypt's willingness to continue its efforts to mediate a ceasefire in the region.
On Monday night, Abbas demanded that Israel stop the airstrikes on Gaza and called them a “dangerous Israeli escalation”, but failed to condemn the rocket attacks from Gaza on southern Israel.
Meanwhile, Gaza terrorists continued their rocket attacks on Israel on Tuesday evening and upped the ante when they hit deeper into the country than before.
Rockets were fired towards Jerusalem, Tel Aviv and as far north as Hadera, located approximately 45 kilometers (28 miles) north of Tel Aviv and south of Haifa.
