Israel's delegation has arrived in Cairo for discussions aimed to reach a ceasefire with Palestinian factions in Gaza, an informed source told Ahram Online late on Tuesday.
The delegation is comprised of three negotiators: Isaac Molha, adviser to Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, Yoram Cohen, chief of Shin Bet security agency and Amos Gilad, head of the political bureau at the defence ministry.
Egypt mediated a 72-hour truce on Tuesday between Israel and Hamas-led Palestinian factions that officials hope will lead to further talks and a more lasting end to the Gaza war.
Israeli ground forces withdrew from the Gaza Strip ahead of the truce, with a military spokesman saying the main goal of destroying cross-border infiltration tunnels had been achieved, Reuters reported.
The Israeli war on Gaza has led to the death of 1,834 Palestinians since it began on 8 July. Most of them are civilians.
Israel says 64 soldiers and three civilians have been killed in clashes and shelling in and around the enclave.
