Egypt PM Hisham Qandil Decries Gaza ‘Disaster’

Egypt’s PM Hisham Qandil

Egypt’s Prime Minister Hisham Qandil has condemned Israeli attacks on Gaza as a “disaster” during a short trip to the territory.

Qandil, who talked to Hamas leaders in his three-hour visit, said Israel’s “aggression” must stop.

Israel mounted a huge assault overnight and Gaza militants continued to launch rockets. Air-raid sirens and an explosion were later heard in Tel Aviv.

Two Israeli women and a man died when a rocket fired from Gaza hit a building in the southern town of Kiryat Malachi on Thursday.

However, there is not yet any sign of a ground offensive.
