Truce enshrines Egypt's mediator role in Gaza wars

Israeli tanks drive near the border between Israel and the Gaza Strip as they return from the Hamas-controlled Palestinian coastal enclave on August 5, 2014The Gaza truce drawn up by Egypt shows Cairo has an “indispensable” role mediating conflicts between Israel and Hamas, despite strained ties with the Palestinian faction, analysts said Tuesday. Israel withdrew all of its forces from Gaza on Tuesday after nearly a month-long deadly campaign, as a 72-hour ceasefire announced by Cairo went into effect. “The failure of that truce shows that Egypt is indispensible to any solution in Gaza,” Nathan Thrall, Jerusalem-based senior analyst with the International Crisis Group, told AFP. “There was never any possibility of sidelining Egypt from any ceasefire agreement… Egypt was motivated not to be sidelined and not to lose its primacy in the process of mediation.”
