Egyptian President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi affirmed his country’s continued efforts to end the war in the Gaza Strip, enhance the delivery of aid and the free movement of displaced people from the south to the north of the Strip.

The Egyptian president warned of the danger of the Israeli military operation in Rafah, noting that about 1.5 million people have been displaced to the border area near the Egyptian border with Gaza, while aid officials expressed concern about the possibility of famine in the territory.

Sisi said through a recorded message during his visit to the Police Academy that Egypt seeks to achieve a ceasefire and provide the largest possible amount of aid to those affected, warning of the difficult humanitarian situation in Gaza, and that the lack of aid will lead to famine.

Egypt, in cooperation with Qatar and the United States, is mediating between Israel and Hamas to reach a ceasefire and prisoner exchange.

In the same context, Egyptian Foreign Minister Sameh Shoukry called on the government of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to open land crossings with Gaza to facilitate the entry of more humanitarian aid.
