Egypt foreign minister meets Jordan, PA officials in Cairo

CAIRO -- Foreign ministers and chiefs of intelligence from Egypt, Jordan and the Palestinian Authority are meeting in Cairo to discuss the latest violent escalations between Israelis and Palestinians.

 

Thursday's meeting comes after a cease-fire between the Palestinians and Israelis was reached a day earlier to end the largest flare-up of violence between the two sides since a 2014 war.

 

The fighting, which took place throughout Tuesday and continued overnight, saw Palestinian militants firing scores of rockets and mortars into Israel, and Israel carrying out dozens of airstrikes in the Gaza strip.
