Israeli Finance Minister Moshe Kahlon confirmed on Tuesday that Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu held a secret meeting with Egyptian President Abdel Fattah Sisi in May to discuss violent Palestinian protests on the border with the Gaza Strip.

When asked by the Army Radio whether he was aware of the meeting, Kahlon replied “Yes,” adding that “everything that is happening in Gaza is being done through Egyptian mediation and involvement.”

“We are not ashamed to say that we want a ceasefire with Hamas. The formula has always been the same — if they do not shoot — we do not shoot as well,” the minister added.

On Monday, Channel Ten reported that Netanyahu, accompanied by several advisers and security guards, visited Cairo on May 22 for talks with Sisi in an effort to settle the crisis around Gaza triggered by the opening of the US embassy in Jerusalem and the anniversary of the establishment of the State of Israel, which prompted a Palestinian exodus in 1948.

Since March a number of temporary ceasefire agreements between Israel and Hamas have been reached through Egyptian mediation.

Over 160 Palestinians have been killed in clashes with Israeli troops since the beginning of the Palestinian protest campaign against Israel, dubbed the Great March of Return.

Israeli authorities do not rule out holding a full-scale military operation in the enclave if rocket shelling and arson balloons attacks by Palestinians continue.

ISIS/Sinai-Province wilayat hides in Gaza, courtesy of Iran-funded Hamas…
ISIS = Iran’s roaches…
Hamas = part of Muslim Brotherhood, banned as a terror group in Russia, Syria, Egypt, etc.
Hamas also backs “rebels”, especially al-Nusra in Syria.
Iran has strangely also befriended Qatar and Syria, you know, those because of whom Syria was destroyed…
Iranian ayatollahs = TRAITORS and terrorism funders…

Actually, it’s just propaganda : I’ve already told you : SAA showed the stockpile of Israeli-backed ‘Golan’s Knights’ who reconciliated with SAA 2-3 days before SAA shown these weapons, saying these belonged to ISIS. Do you know that Assad also bought blood-oil from ISIS? YPG found documents while seizing a refinery… I don’t remember of any fights between SAA and ‘Golan’s Knights’ (I don’t say there weren’t). Israelis proposed them some backing in order to protect the border from roaches’ infiltrations. In case you wouldn’t know, Israel has gotten enough casus-belli from Syria to legally start an all-out war any… Read more »

I know that what you are saying is propaganda so there is no need to repeat it.

Not even, it’s just recouping through OSINT and debunking BS, no matter the side. And some are pretty heavy with crapaganda : White-Helmets, ISIS, Nusra, Pallywood, UK, Qatar, Turkey, Houthis, Iran. Just go back in time on the site and see by yourself : I was as merciless on White Helmets or on the Obama admin. In fact, by refusing to be biased, no matter the side, you’re sure to displease mostly every actor’s fanboy… But the truth is that there are NO GOOD GUYS and only the truth will set us free, even if it hurts. If you’re not… Read more »

“We are not ashamed to say that we want a ceasefire with Hamas. The formula has always been the same — if they do not shoot — we do not shoot as well,” the minister added. => This is their very error. Hamas are shitlamists who sworn the destruction of the state of Israel. There will NEVER be peace until either Israel or Hamas is terminated. “Over 160 Palestinians have been killed in clashes with Israeli troops since the beginning of the Palestinian protest campaign against Israel, dubbed the Great March of Return.” => 168 to be exact, most of… Read more »
