CAIRO – 6 January 2024: Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas will make a visit to Cairo on Monday, during which he will hold talks with his Egyptian counterpart, President Abdel Fattah El-Sisi.

According to the Palestinian Fatah movement on Saturday, Abbas will visit the Egyptian capital alongside Hussein Al-Sheikh, Secretary-General of the Palestine Liberation Organization's (PLO) Executive Committee, and Majed Faraj, the head of General Intelligence Service.

Egypt has intensified its calls for the international community to seek a solution for the Palestinian cause, especially since the Israeli aggression on Gaza, which has killed thousands of civilians including women and children over the past three months.

In many occasions, Cairo has stressed that achieving sustainable stability in the region requires reaching a fair and comprehensive resolution to the Palestinian cause based on the two-state solution.

Egypt has also taken it upon itself to deliver tens of thousands of tons of humanitarian aid to alleviate the suffering of the Palestinian civilians, especially as the Israeli attacks have caused the strip to suffer from one of the world’s worst humanitarian conditions.

Furthermore, Cairo is working to achieve a permanent cessation to the ongoing Israeli assaults in Gaza, receiving high-level delegations from Hamas and Islamic Jihad. Egypt has been also confronting an Israeli scheme to relocate Palestinians in Gaza to Sinai, a proposal that Cairo has strongly rejected.

The Israeli attacks in Gaza over the past 92 days have killed 22,722 people and injured 58,166 individuals, according to the Ministry of Health in Gaza. Most of the victims are women and children.

Over the past 24 hours, the Israeli forces committed 12 massacres against Palestinian families in the strip, killing 122 people and injuring 256, added the ministry.
