The 3-strong delegation was accompanied by Egyptian intelligence agents upon arrival for the venue of talks with Egyptian officials, a security source told Anadolu Agency. A delegation representing Palestinian factions is already in Cairo for talks about a durable ceasefire in the Gaza Strip with Israel. Delegation member Qais Abdel Karim told Anadolu Agency that the delegation will meet Egyptian intelligence chief Farid al-Tohami on Tuesday. Palestinian factions and Israel have endorsed an Egyptian proposal for a three-day ceasefire in the Gaza Strip starting Tuesday. Israel has since completely withdrawn its forces from the besieged Palestinian territory. According to the Palestinian Health Ministry, at least 1867 Palestinians, mostly civilians, were killed and 9470 wounded in unrelenting Israeli attacks since July 7. The Israeli army, for its part, has confirmed the killing of 64 troops and the injury of 651 others in Gaza combat operations, while three civilians were killed in rocket attacks on Israeli cities.
