According to the report, Egypt acted swiftly to pressure Israel to back out of the planned operation, which was decided upon following the recent multiple terror attacks near Eilat.
According to the report, the Palestinian Authority joined the efforts to convince the terror groups to stop the rocket attacks on Israel, informing the factions in Gaza that it is only a matter of time before Israel carries out the threat on Haniyeh's life.
Despite the Islamic Jihad's agreement to an armistice, the rocket fire from Gaza continued on Friday; two Qassams exploded in open areas in the western Negev. Hours earlier, a rocket hit the Ashkelon vicinity. No injuries or damage were caused in the attacks.
