CAIRO, Aug 22 (Aswat Masriya) - Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas will arrive in Cairo on Friday in a two-day visit to discuss latest developments in Gaza Strip with Egypt's President Sisi.

The Israeli military has stepped up its campaign against Al Qassam brigades, Hamas's military wing, since the Egyptian-brokered ceasefire collapsed on Tuesday for the fourth time.

Egypt will continue talks with both parties, despite the departure of their delegations from Cairo, the Egyptian foreign ministry said in a statement on Wednesday.

Egypt has launched several initiatives calling for an immediate ceasefire in the Palestinian Gaza Strip since July, but none of them were maintained.
