Egypt’s diplomatic breakthrough in Gaza continued to dominate the airwaves last night

Egypt’s role mediating a ceasefire between Israel and Palestinian Islamic Jihad continued to receive attention from the talking heads last night, with Masaa DMC (watch, runtime: 5:26), Salet El Tahrir (watch, runtime: 3:04), and Ala Mas’ouleety (watch, runtime: 2:05) covering the international praise that headed Egypt’s way yesterday for its role in ending the three-day conflict. We have more on this in this morning’s Diplomacy section, below.

Egypt was in contact with Israel, PIJ and Hamas to prevent the violence in Gaza from escalating further, and succeeded in its strategy to prevent Hamas from joining the fighting, Tarek Fahmy, a professor of political science at the National Center for Middle East Studies, told Ala Mas’ouleety (watch, runtime: 12:25). One of Egypt’s biggest responsibilities at the moment is to bring the Israeli-Palestinian conflict back into the international conversation, Fahmy added.
