CAIRO – 10 October 2023: Egyptian President Abdel Fatah al Sisi stressed that Egypt is committed to Arab issues, and mainly the Palestinian Cause.

He added in statements on Tuesday that “Egypt’s National Security is his top responsibility and it cannot be compromised or forfeited under any circumstance.”

He added that Egypt will not allow the termination of the Palestinian Cause at the expense of other parties.

He also noted that Egypt has intensified its efforts to halt the military confrontations, and as a result, save Palestinian lives.

“The current escalation is so dangerous and has consequences that can jeopardize regional security and stability” President Sisi said.

Adding: “We’re communicating with all international powers and influential regional parties to accomplish an immediate ceasefire and pacification that would preserve the lives of civilians on both sides.”

As the fourth day of the Palestinian-Israeli confrontations continue; sources within the Gaza Strip have told Youm7 newspaper that Israel used prohibited white phosphorus against Palestinians in Al Karama area, north of Gaza.

This usage of prohibited weapons comes in conjunction with intensified and violent raids against the strip as a response for Hamas operation ‘Toofan Al-Aqsa’ carried out since Saturday against Israel.   

The Israeli warplanes have intensified their violent raids on Tuesday, demolishing entire neighborhoods inside the Strip, along with targeting the Palestinian civilians’ houses, killing 830 people of women, children and elderly along with wounding up to 4,250 others, according to the Palestinian health ministry.

Israeli and Palestinian government officials have confirmed that they up to 15 massacres have been committed by the Israeli forces so far. They also explained that the health sector in Gaza suffers from a lack of electricity supplies that do not exceed 4 hours maximum.

Early on Saturday, Hamas launched a surprise attack on Israeli cities, resulting in the deaths of hundreds of Israelis and the capture of dozens of hostages.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu responded by declaring a "state of war," and Israeli jets continued to carry out relentless airstrikes on the Gaza Strip.

Since then, Egypt’s President Abdel Fattah El-Sisi and Foreign Minister Sameh Shoukry received phone calls from world leaders, who have expressed concerns over the ongoing escalation.
