Egypt, Saudi Arabia call for Gaza cease-fire

The foreign ministers of Egypt and Saudi Arabia yesterday demanded immediate ceasefire in the fighting between Israel and Hamas in the Gaza Strip.

The state-run Saudi Press Agency said Saudi Foreign Minister, Prince Faisal bin Farhan, had spoken to Egyptian Foreign Minister, Sameh Shoukry, and both agreed that an immediate cease-fire was needed.

Egypt has been trying to negotiate an end to the fighting.

The Saudi statement also said the two diplomats called on “the international community to confront the aggressive Israeli practices against the brotherly Palestinian people.”

President Joe Biden and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu have also spoken about the situation in Gaza.

According to a statement from Netanyahu’s office, the Israeli leader updated Biden on the developments and actions that Israel has taken and intends to take.

It said Netanyahu also thanked Biden for the “unreserved support of the United States for our right to defend ourselves.”

The Biden-Netanyahu call came just hours after an Israeli airstrike targeted and destroyed a high-rise building in Gaza City that housed offices of The Associated Press and Al Jazeera Television.

AP’s President and CEO Gary Pruitt said the agency was “shocked and horrified” at the strike while Al Jazeera vowed that it “would not be silenced”.
