There’s no informed reason for optimism, but it’d be nice if this panned out:
CAIRO (Reuters) – Palestinians and Israelis have agreed in principle to proposals aiming to end their conflict, Egypt’s official news agency MENA said on Tuesday.
Quoting unidentified high-level sources, it said the steps, including an Israeli-Palestinian cease-fire, had the support of both the United States and the European Union.
There was no immediate official comment from Israel, the Palestinians or from Egypt which has tried to play the role of mediator in previous efforts to ease Israeli-Palestinian violence.
“High-level sources confirmed an important understanding — reaching the point of an agreement in principle — has been completed between Egypt, Israel, the Palestinians and several active international parties, America and Europe, regarding a comprehensive settlement to the Israeli-Palestinian struggle,” MENA said.
Update Another positive sign.
