CAIRO – 5 August 2022: Egypt has been carrying intensive Egyptian communications to control the escalation in Gaza Strip and calm the situation, according to security source.

The sources confirmed that the Egyptian mediation to calm the situation in Gaza Strip will continue until reaching ceasefire.



“Egypt is practicing its ‘traditional leadership role’ in crises and only aims to maintain calm, stability and protect peace.” The source added.

Cairo called on all parties to exercise self-restraint in order to control the situation in Gaza Strip and to prevent it from developing.
