Egypt’s diplomatic moves in Palestine continue to dominate the airwaves

Diplomacy still reigned supreme on the nation’s airwaves last night, with everyone and their mother talking about and dissecting President Abdel Fattah El Sisi’s invitation of Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas and leaders of other Palestinian factions to Cairo for unity talks, and Egyptian intelligence chief Abbas Kamel’s visits to Tel Aviv, Ramallah, and Gaza this week, all to forge a permanent truce between Israel and Hamas.

Among those taking note: Kelma Akhira (watch, runtime: 10:18 | 7:15), Ala Masouleety (watch, runtime: 5:03 | 14:47), Al Hayah Al Youm (watch, runtime: 3:37 | 2:50), Masaa DMC (watch, runtime: 9:34) and Yahduth Fi Masr (watch, runtime: 4:57).

And your customary dose of covid news: Our covid-19 curve has flattened over the past 10 days — a trend suggesting that folks in Egypt are becoming more consciously aware of the emphasis on social distancing and other precautionary measures, and of the urgency to get vaccinated, Higher Education Minister Khaled Abdel Ghaffar said in a phone-in to Mehwar TV (watch, runtime: 1:25). Citizens that still did not get their shots should register as soon as possible, he said (watch, runtime: 1:30).
