A senior Israeli political source said the government had suspended contacts with Egypt and the United Nations regarding a truce with the Gaza Strip.

Israeli media, including Channel 10, quoted a senior political source, who it did not identify, as saying that Tel Aviv “has no contacts with Egypt and the United Nations on the ceasefire in Gaza”.

The announcement came at the height of the Israeli cabinet meeting on Tuesday morning, chaired by Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.

Yesterday, UN Middle East envoy Nikolay Mladenov said in a tweet that the United Nations “is working closely with Egypt and the concerned parties to ensure that Gaza is pulled from the brink.”
