The Egyptian Foreign Ministry has called on Iran to back its ceasefire plan to end Gaza war between Hamas and Israel, which has so far left more than 300 people dead, including children, in the Gaza Strip.
The call to back the ceasefire proposal came after a telephone conversation between Egyptian Foreign Minister Sameh Shukri and his Iranian counterpart Mohammad Javad Zarif.
In the telephone call it was stated that the main purpose behind the plan is to stop “the daily killings of the Gazan people.”
The request was announced in a statement that was issued by the Egyptian Foreign Ministry on Friday.
The statement said the initiative is the “only” way to support the “innocent” Palestinian people and stop “incessant bloodshed and killings” of people by the Israeli military.
Egypt presented the ceasefire plan on Monday.
