Egypt allows domestic gas into Gaza for 1st time

Israel begins work on Gaza sea barrier

Israel's Security Cabinet met on Sunday to consider Gaza proposals.

Still, in what Palestinians saw a goodwill gesture, Egyptian cooking oil began entering Gaza on Sunday, offsetting Israeli supplies cut off in retaliation for the border violence.

Palestinian protesters gather as tear gas canisters are launched by Israeli forces during a demonstration along the border between Israel and the Gaza strip, east of Gaza city in August 2018.

Haaretz newspaper reported Monday that Israel and Egypt have sidelined the Palestinian Authority (PA) during the talks.

One Israeli soldier was shot dead by a Palestinian sniper. Hamas and other resistance groups have linked their fate to Israel freeing Palestinian security detainees.

Al-Hayat al-Jadida and al-Ayyam said that President Abbas welcomed the Iraqi national football team in the presidential headquarters in the city of Ramallah, the occupied West Bank.

Reports in the Lebanese news paper Al-Akhbar earlier on Friday said the deal stipulated that Hamas must commit to "the end of the provocations along the border, or in other words, the phenomena of the flaming kites and ballons, border crossing operations and setting fire to border posts". Palestinian medics said four people were wounded.

With borders to both Egypt and Israel largely sealed in recent years, Gaza suffers from desperately high rates of poverty and unemployment.
