Gaza talks explore alternative to Israeli troops on Gaza-Egypt border Israeli and Egyptian ceasefire negotiators are in talks about an electronic surveillance system along the border between Gaza and Egypt that could allow Israel to pull back its troops from the area if a ceasefire is agreed, according to two Egyptian sources and a third source familiar with the matter.

A U.S.-German statement said the "episodic deployments" were in preparation for longer-term stationing in…

Hamas chief says latest Israeli attack on Gaza could jeopardise ceasefire talks A new Israeli assault on Gaza on Monday threatened ceasefire talks at a crucial moment, the head of Hamas said, as Israeli tanks pressed into the heart of Gaza City and ordered residents out after a night of massive bombardment.

The assault unfolded as senior U.S. officials were in the region pushing for a ceasefire after Hamas made major concessions last…
WESTERN PERSPECTIVE Russian missile attacks kill at least 41, hit children's hospital, Ukraine says Russia blasted the main children's hospital in Kyiv with a missile in broad daylight on Monday and rained missiles down on other cities across Ukraine, killing at least 41 civilians in the deadliest wave of air strikes for months.
