Israel envoy to travel to Egypt

Israel envoy to travel to Egypt

A senior official says Israel's chief envoy in talks to end the Gaza conflict will travel Thursday to Egypt, which is trying to broker a truce.
A senior official at the Israeli Defense Ministry says lead negotiator Amos Gilad will present Israel's stance on proposed terms for a cease-fire to end the war with Hamas militants.
The senior official spoke on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to speak to the media.
Egyptian and Palestinian officials said Wednesday they hoped to seal Hamas' agreement on a temporary halt in fighting, which would be presented to Israel for approval.
