Egyptian prime minister to intensify truce efforts to halt aggression

Egyptian premier Hisham Qandil vowed Friday to intensify Cairo’s efforts to secure a truce and end Israel’s “aggression” in Gaza, after a strike killed two as he visited the strip.

“Egypt will not hesitate to intensify its efforts and make sacrifices to stop this aggression and achieve a lasting truce,” he said at a press conference in Gaza City’s Shifa hospital after seeing some victims from the latest strike.
