The United Nations’ agency, the World Food Programme (WFP), has announced Tuesday the suspension of the delivery of aid to northern Gaza after a convoy of its trucks faced gunfire - as reported by AFP.

The WFP previously resumed its deliveries on Sunday after a three-week pause but its convoy "faced complete…violence" and "unprecedented levels of desperation,” it said in a statement.

Hamas announced earlier Tuesday that Ismail Haniyeh, head of the Political Bureau, arrived in Cairo leading a delegation for talks with Egyptian officials concerning the situation in Gaza.

Haniyeh's visit to Egypt aims to discuss the political and field conditions amidst the ongoing Israeli Occupation aggression in Gaza, amidst international efforts and calls for an immediate ceasefire, according to a statement by Hamas.

In recent days, Cairo has been the site of negotiations and discussions aimed at reaching a prisoner exchange deal.
