CAIRO – 24 April 2024:  A high-ranking source said on Wednesday that Egypt is intensifying its contacts with all parties to find a way to implement ceasefire in Gaza Strip.

The source added that all of Egypt’s communications aims at stopping the war in Gaza and preventing it from spreading regionally.

On Tuesday, head of the State Information Service [SIS] Diaa Rashwan confirmed that Egypt has never discussed any plans with the Israeli side of a ground invasion to Rafah city.

He stressed Egypt’s ‘firm and well-known’ stance of its complete rejection of any plans for a ground invasion to Rafah, ‘which will lead to massacres, heavy human losses, and widespread destruction’.

This, on the top of “what the brotherly Palestinian people in the Gaza Strip has been suffering from during the past 200 days of Israel’s bloody aggression”, Rashwan said.

Egypt's repeated warnings had reached the Israeli side - from all channels – according to Rashwan. He noted that Egypt’s warning and rejection was announced from the very first moment the idea was proposed by the Israeli side, due to the expected huge losses, and the extremely negative repercussions that would follow on the stability of the entire region.

Rashwan added that while Israel is ‘contemplating this invasion’, Egypt and the whole international community stands entirely against it.

He said that Egypt has been continuing its efforts since the beginning of the Israeli aggression against Gaza and have been focused on reaching a ceasefire and prisoners’ swap agreement.

Egypt also has been seeking the passage of sufficient humanitarian aid to the people in Gaza and to receive any wounded or sick people out from the strip for treatment, as almost all health services have collapsed inside Gaza Strip.
