CAIRO: Egypt’s president, Abdel Fattah El-Sisi, has offered to send a large aid convoy to Gaza.
Spokesperson Bassam Rady said that the country had sent 130 trucks loaded with 2,500 tons of food, medicine, baby milk, clothes, furniture, electronic appliances, and other materials through the ‘Long Live Egypt’ (Tahya Masr) fund.
This fund has activated an account, No. 037037, at all Egyptian banks, aiming to receive financial contributions and donations to meet the needs of Palestinians.
Egypt succeeded in procuring a ceasefire agreement between Hamas and Israel on Friday after an 11-day conflict, following unrest in Jerusalem that spread the region.
El-Sisi directed the dispatch of two Egyptian security delegations to Tel Aviv and the Palestinian territories to negotiate subsequent measures that will maintain the stability of the situation, in order to consolidate the ceasefire.
