Sunday, the Egyptian intelligence chief will arrive in Palestine to follow up on the ceasefire agreement between the Israeli Occupation and the armed factions in the Gaza Strip, which was mediated by Egypt after an 11-day conflict.

Palestinian Civil Affairs Minister Hussein al-Sheikh confirmed in a tweet on his Twitter account that Abbas Kamel would arrive Sunday in "Palestine to consult with the Palestinian leadership on the latest developments after the recent aggression on our people and its repercussions."

The sheikh added that he would discuss with all "what the city of Jerusalem and its holy sites is facing, as well as the file of Gaza reconstruction and the national Palestinian dialogue."

On May 20, the Israeli Occupation and Hamas reached a ceasefire agreement, which came into effect at dawn on Friday, May 21, after Israeli Occupation violence left 248 Palestinians dead, including 66 children.

Egyptian President Abdel Fattah El-Sisi pledged $500 million to help rebuild Gaza.

The escalation erupted as dozens of Palestinian families are at risk of being illegally evicted from their homes in favor of Israeli settlers in the Occupied East Jerusalem neighborhood of Sheikh Jarrah.
