Egypt succeeded in stabilizing the cease-fire, on Tuesday, between the Palestinian Resistance in Gaza and the occupation – TwitterThe Israeli Public Radio said, on Wednesday, that an Egyptian security delegation will arrive in the Gaza Strip on Thursday for talks aimed at stabilizing the ceasefire and discussing ways to improve the living conditions in the Gaza Strip.

The radio added that the delegation would be headed by the official of the Palestinian file in the intelligence service, Ahmed Abdelkhaliq, and expected that some Hamas leaders would go to Egypt in the next few days.

Egyptian mediation between the Palestinian Resistance and the Israeli occupation succeeded in reestablishing the cease-fire in Gaza after an unprecedented round of escalation that began on Sunday and lasted about 48 hours.

On Monday, an escalation between the Palestinian Resistance factions and the Israeli occupation broke out following the death of 7 Resistance fighters who belong to the Al-Qassam Brigades, after their clash with an Israeli special force that infiltrated east of Khan Yunis on Saturday. The conflict also resulted in the death of an Israeli officer and injuring another.

The resistance responded to what is considered to be a misunderstanding of the cease-fire understandings and rocketed the occupation settlements and communities surrounding Gaza, before announcing, on Monday evening, the re-establishment the cease-fire mediated by Egypt.
