Egypt urges calm after latest rocket attack
Egyptian officials call on Gaza groups to stop provocations and for Israel to accelerate arrangements agreed upon as part of May ceasefire.

Egyptian officials on Sunday pushed for calm in the Gaza Strip after rockets were fired towards Israel and the IDF retaliated, The Associated Press reported. On Saturday morning, two rockets fired from the Gaza Strip landed near beaches in central Israel, causing no physical injuries or damages. Hours later, the IDF attacked Hamas targets in the Gaza Strip in retaliation for the rocket fire.

The IDF Spokesperson's Unit said that "fighter jets and fighter helicopters attacked a short time ago a series of targets in a Hamas terrorist rocket compound. In addition, tanks attacked Hamas military positions on the Gaza Strip border."

Egyptian officials called on Hamas and other groups in Gaza to stop their actions seen by Israel as “provocative,” and for Israel to accelerate arrangements agreed upon as part of the ceasefire agreed upon this past May, an Egyptian diplomat with knowledge of the ongoing efforts said.
