The visit comes within the framework of Egyptian coordination with all concerned parties to address the current crisis in the Gaza Strip, sources told the channel.

It also comes one day before the Arab summit in Riyadh. At a request from Palestine and Saudi Arabia, Saturday’s summit will discuss the Israeli aggression against the Gaza Strip that has been ongoing since 7 October.

Cairo has been coordinating with international and regional partners to reach a ceasefire and allow food and other relief aid to enter the besieged strip through the Rafah border.

Since the start of the Israeli war on Gaza on 7 October, the Israeli onslaught on Gaza, which is now entering its 34th day, has killed  10,560 people, including 4,324 children and 2,823 women and wounded over 25,000 others.

Israel has blockaded the strip and cut off all food, water, power, and fuel supplies while creating hurdles delaying the arrival of humanitarian aid to the Palestinian strip.

Egypt had mediated ceasefire agreements in previous rounds of fighting between Palestinian factions in Gaza and Israel.
