JERUSALEM (Worthy News)-- Israeli and Palestinian negotiators in Cairo on Tuesday agreed to schedule new talks on a durable Gaza ceasefire for the last week of October, the Times of Israel reported.
A delay in the talks after their first Egypt-mediated negotiations since the end last month of a devastating 50-day war in Gaza had been expected, because of upcoming Jewish and Muslim holidays.
The Palestinian delegation, which includes rival factions Hamas and Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas's Fatah, will remain in Cairo this week to discuss resolving their own disputes.
