Egypt summons Hamas officials in fear of escalation on Gaza border

May 3, 2019 12:26 P.M. (Updated: May 5, 2019 11:11 A.M.)
GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- Egyptian mediators urgently summoned senior Hamas movement officials, including Yahya Sinwar, the head of its politburo in Gaza, and senior members of the Palestinian Islamic Jihad movement, to the Egyptian capital of Cairo, on Friday.
According to Hebrew-language news outlets, Egyptian mediators summoned senior Hamas and Islamic Jihad officials to Cairo, in an attempt to prevent an escalation along the Gaza border with Israel.
Sources added that the summon came after Israeli warplanes carried out airstrikes, targeting a number of Hamas sites in northern Gaza, "in response" to the launching of incendiary balloons and explosive objetcs by Palestinians from the besieged Gaza Strip into southern Israel.
Palestinians in Gaza view the incendiary kites as a form of protest against Israel's nearly 12-year blockade of Gaza and for Palestinian refugees right of return to their homes and lands which are now known as Israel.
