Urgent: Sisi says Egypt truce plan likely to end Gaza conflicts

CAIRO, Aug. 2 (Xinhua) -- Egypt's President Abdel Fattah al- Sisi said on Saturday an Egyptian truce plan provided a "real chance" to end the Gaza conflict and urged all related parts to implement it.

"The Egyptian proposal is the real chance to find a solution to the crisis in Gaza and to end the bloodshed," Sisi said in a televised news conference.

A Palestinian delegation is expected in Cairo on Saturday to discuss a truce, a day after a temporary 72-hour ceasefire collapsed.
