President Abdel Fattah El-Sisi received a phone call from US President Joe Biden, during which developments in the situation in the Gaza Strip were discussed. 

The US President expressed his deep appreciation for the intensive, persistent and ongoing Egyptian efforts and mediation to reach a ceasefire and a truce agreement in the Strip, and it was agreed on the necessity of intensifying International efforts to make the negotiation process a success and achieve a breakthrough that ends the prolonged humanitarian tragedy experienced by the Palestinian people.

In this context, the two presidents discussed the difficult humanitarian situation of the Palestinians in the Gaza Strip, the lack of means of life in the Strip, and the lack of fuel necessary for hospitals and bakeries. 

The two presidents agreed - in this regard - to pay quantities of humanitarian aid and fuel, to be delivered to the United Nations at the Karam Abo Salem crossing, temporarily, until a legal mechanism is reached to restart the Rafah crossing from the Palestinian side.

The call also included an emphasis on the necessity of combining various efforts to implement the two-state solution in accordance with international legitimacy resolutions, in addition to the two presidents affirming their rejection of all attempts to displace the Palestinians from their land, and their support for all means aimed at preventing the aggravation and expansion of the conflict.
