Ceasefire talks in Gaza between Israeli, Palestinian, Egyptian and Qatari intelligence chiefs in Cairo have ended . Talks defined by high-level sources as positive and with progress towards an agreement that would lead to a ceasefire and the release of the hostages held but Israel does not give up: “We would attack Rafah as soon as we are ready “.

“The four-way negotiations on the ceasefire in Gaza were positive and the consultations will continue in the coming days,” a high-level Egyptian source told the state-run newspaper Al Qahera. Similar words to those of the US Security Council spokesman, John Kirby , who declared: “The talks have been constructive and are moving in the right direction.” Obviously the final decision will be up to the various national leaders to whom the heads of the security services will report the results of the dialogue but it is a race against time.

Those responsible for Mossad and Shin Bet are already on their way to Tel Aviv to report but words of war are still ringing in Israel. “We are working to evacuate Rafah before the attack” insist the Israeli armed forces whose spokesperson declared: “We have the capabilities to do so. Rafah residents will be allowed to evacuate the area and then we will attack. When will it happen? How will it happen? We will decide when the time comes.”

In fact, the talks took place just as international requests are growing for Israel not to proceed with the assault on the southernmost city of Gaza, Rafah, now full of over a million displaced Palestinians. “ Israeli military operations in Rafah could lead to a massacre in Gaza,” said UN humanitarian coordinator Martin Griffiths, adding that “the government of Israel can no longer ignore the calls of the international community.” Appeals also came from the Vatican while our Foreign Minister Antonio Tajani declared: “At this point Israel's reaction is disproportionate, there are too many victims who have nothing to do with Hamas”.

Meanwhile in Rafah the population lives in fear of new bombings . The Israeli army said on Monday it had rescued two hostages from captivity, the operation was accompanied by airstrikes that killed dozens of Palestinians, according to local health officials. “They asked us to go out of Gaza City, to the south, so we went to Khan Younis. Then they told us we had to be evacuated to Rafah. Now people are terrified by the prospect of a military attack” some Palestinians from the ActionAid program said , adding: “Most of Gaza's population is now in Rafah. There are many people here in tents and no one knows where they might evacuate again.”
