Israeli envoys visited Egypt for talks on Wednesday

Israeli security officials paid a brief visit to Egypt on Wednesday, unnamed security sources told Anadolu new agency.

The delegation reportedly included three security officials and arrived in Cairo via a private jet on Wednesday morning, leaving in the afternoon.

Egyptian authorities have not disclosed any details about the visit, which comes amidst the deadly Israeli onslaught on the Gaza Strip.

The Israeli assault, dubbed "Operation Protective Edge", has led to the death of over 1,300 Palestinians and the injury of at least 7,170 others. Casualties are expected to rise as the Israeli cabinet approved the continuation of the assault on Wednesday.

On 17 July, Israeli public radio said that a high-level security delegation had visited Cairo for talks on the Gaza ceasefire. That delegation included head of Israel's general security apparatus Yoram Cohen, chairman of the political and security divisions in the Ministry of Defence Amod Gilad, and Israeli negotiator Yitzhak Molcho, who also serves as an advisor to the prime minister.
