There is hope for peace in Gaza
Nov 20, 2012 / 6:46 am
Egyptian president Mohammed Morsi says Israel's "aggression" against Gaza will end Tuesday.
Speaking to reporters Tuesday in the Nile Delta city of Zagazig, Morsi did not provide any evidence to support his prediction that an end to Israel's weeklong offensive against Gaza is imminent. He only said negotiations between Israel and Gaza's Hamas rulers will yield "positive results" during the coming hours without elaborating.
His prediction in comments carried on Egypt's official MENA news agency comes as international diplomatic efforts to end the fighting picked up pace with the scheduled arrival in the region later Tuesday of U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton.
