Egyptian intelligence chief working to forge cease-fire

| No Comments

Egypt's intelligence chief is in the talks with Hamas and Israel to end the five days of fire, news sources report.

Mohammed Shehata, a general with Egyptian intelligence, told CNN the Israeli military is reluctant to cease-fire without indications that a truce would hold.
Negotiations are still ongoing with no clear conclusion yet, CNN reported.

Thousands of Israeli troops are swarming near the Gaza border, "awaiting orders to invade should Israeli leaders decide to widen the operation," FOX news reports.

Rockets soared from Gaza toward Israel Saturday. One missile was blocked by a missile defense system as it was on the way to Tel Aviv, CNN reports.

Sunday comes a lull in the fire after Israel expanded its airstrike campaign on rockets in the Gaza Strip that stroke a Hamas government compound and a Cabinet building on Friday, FOX news reported.
