This came during separate phone conversations on Tuesday with Cypriot foreign minister Konstantinos Kompos, Norwegian foreign minister Espen Barth Eide, and Irish foreign minister Michael Martin.

They exchanged views on the deteriorating humanitarian and security fallout resulting from Israeli military operations in the Gaza Strip, read a statement by the Egyptian foreign ministry.

Shoukry also discussed with his counterparts means to contain the repercussions of the crisis, and prevent the expansion of violence to other parts of the region.

He also explained Egypt's call for humanitarian aid and an immediate ceasefire, ending the unprecedented suffering endured by the people of Gaza.

Israel’s attack on the city of Gaza, now on its 32nd day, has killed over 10,000 Palestinians and wounded 25,965 others.

Israel has also imposed a complete blockade on the enclave, allowing only a trickle of food and medical supplies, and barring fuel into the blockaded Palestinian territory, despite global warnings of a developing humanitarian catastrophe.
