Egypt will reapply daylight saving time starting this Thursday, the Egyptian cabinet announced. The clock will now go an hour forward to readjst to daylight saving time, which was applied in late May and then cancelled during the holy month of Ramadan to shorten the fasting period of Muslims. Daylight saving time was first adopted in Egypt in 1988 as a way to reduce electricity consumption. The energy ministry later submitted a study to the cabinet showing the move had no impact on energy consumption. In Egypt, standard time is GMT (UTC)+2. Daylight saving time is GMT+3. More»

US Secretary of State John Kerry and his top aides were checked by Egyptian security officers using metal detectors at the Egyptian presidential palace in an unconventional diplomatic move. Foreign officials normally trust US officials enough not to check them with such stringent security measures. Diplomatic immunity usually means that top officials are exempt from such checks because of their potential to be viewed a sign of distrust. In footage obtained by Reuters, an Egyptian official raises a handheld metal-detecting implement to Kerry's jacket before waving him through for the high-level meeting with newly-elected president Abdel Fattah al-Sisi. The meeting, organised to discuss how to reach a ceasefire agreement in the ongoing conflict between Hamas and Israel in the Gaza Strip, also saw Kerry's aides herded through a stationary metal detector. The aides who accompanied Kerry included his deputy chief of staff Jonathan Finer, adviser David Thorne and White House spokeswoman Jen Psaki. At a press conference in Egypt, Kerry said that an Egyptian plan could form the basis of a ceasefire despite Hamas' refusals to sign over claims they were not initially consulted and their view that their endorsement would be tantamount to "surrender". He also announed that the US was to send $47m (£28m) in aid to Gaza "to alleviate the immediate humanitarian crisis". America's senior diplomat has prolonged his stay in Egypt to hold further talks with Egyptian officials and the Arab League. More than 600 Palestinians have been killed and 3,640 injured in Israel's air and ground offensive, while 29 Israelis have lost their lives in the fighting, 27 of whom were Israel Defence Forces (IDF) soldiers.

The President offered condolences to the martyrs families, asserting that these treacherous terrorist attacks will not undermine the determination and insistence of the Egyptian people and its Armed Forces to uproot terrorism and extremism. The President pledged to retaliate for the martyrs saying "l am offering condolences to the whole Egyptian people and not only to the families of the martyrs". He added that "the martyrs blood is our responsibility". Sisi confirmed that the current crisis is the biggest to face Egypt as this is the first time in which Egypt is targeted   this way. "Egypt is currently in a war", Sisi said, asserting that Egypt is targeted. The President said a committee has been set up to follow up the incident, adding that the assignment of this committee is to review all  details in  Egypt to know what is going on. More»

US Secretary of State John Kerry said Tuesday that he supports the ceasefire proposed by Egypt to end violence between Israeli forces and Hamas in the Gaza Strip. Speaking at a press conference with his Egyptian counterpart Sameh Shoukry in Cairo, Kerry said Gaza rulers Hamas have "a fundamental choice to make" that will have "will have a profound impact on the people of Gaza." "There is a framework available to end the violence and that framework is the Egyptian initiative that has been put forward," Kerry said. Over 600 Palestinians have been killed since Israeli forces launched Operation Protective Edge against Gaza two weeks ago. An ongoing five-day Israeli ground offensive has led to graver losses of Gaza civilians along with the death of 28 Israeli soldiers – the highest Israeli military death toll since its 2006 war with Lebanon. Last week, Egypt put forth a ceasefire that was accepted by Israel but rejected by Hamas, who said it would not agree to a truce unless the debilitating 7-year-old blockade on Gaza was lifted first.

The United Nations Security Council met on Tuesday for emergency debate over the Gaza crisis. Participants welcomed the Egypt-led bid to end fighting between Israel and Hamas militants. Addressing the meeting from Ramallah in the West Bank, United Nations Secretary General Ban Ki-moon said he hoped ceasefire in the Gaza Strip would be reached soon. Ban, who is currently on a Middle East tour, preferred not to disclose the details of talks conducted between the United Nations, the League of Arab States, the United States and other regional and international players. He said the most promising was Egypt’s initiative based on truce agreements reached in November 2012. The peace plan, in his words, had been welcomed by Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas and the League of Arab States, but not by Hamas. Some 60 nations took part in the debates. The bulk of them condemned Israel’s excessive actions. Palestinian Ambassador to the UN Riyad Mansour said that more than 600 people had been killed and some 3,500 had been injured in the Palestinian enclave as a result of Israel’s attacks. “The Security Council still has a responsibility to act to stop the slaughter of innocent men, women and children ... We are not numbers, we are human beings,” Mansour said, demonstrating photos of Palestinian civilian victims. “The council must play its rightful role and contribute to the urgent efforts to secure a ceasefire.” More»

Turkey has summoned the Egyptian charge d'affaires Tuesday to express objection to the tone used by Egypt's foreign ministry against the Turkish counterpart on Sunday, Al Ahram's Arabic news website reported. The Egyptian foreign ministry had summoned the Turkish charge d'affaires Monday to protest the sharp remarks Turkey's Prime Minister Tayyip Erdogan made about Egypt and its president. On Friday Erdogan slammed Egypt's President Abdel-Fattah El-Sisi as a "tyrant" whose administration is "illegitimate," while rebuking Cairo's endeavours to negotiate a ceasefire in Gaza between Israel and Islamist Hamas movement, who snubbed the agreement Ties between Ankara and Cairo have soured since last year's ouster of Islamist president Mohamed Morsi of the Muslim Brotherhood, which Erdogan has long supported.

Congress has overseen the formation of a lobbying group for Egypt. A group of House members have formed the Egypt Caucus in a campaign to restore U.S. military aid to Cairo, WorldTribune.com reported. The House members, almost all of them Republicans, have asserted that the new military-backed government led by President Abdul Fatah Sisi marked a continuation of the strategic partnership with the United States. “If this government succumbs to radical rule, it will be a profound blow to the people of Egypt and to all free people everywhere,” Rep. Dana Rohrabacher, the new group’s co-chairman, said. “We will stand or fall together.” In a news conference on July 16, the caucus acknowledged allegations of human and civil rights abuses by the Egyptian military and police. But House members said Sisi was committed to modernizing Egypt and stopping it from falling to the Muslim Brotherhood. “We need this caucus now more than ever,” Rep. Michele Bachmann,” a Minnesota Republican, said. “What President Al Sisi is trying to do, quite frankly, is to set Egypt on a positive path toward prosperity and growth and peace in the Middle East region.” Organizers said the caucus came in response to lobbying within the House and Senate against the restoration of $1.3 billion in U.S. military aid to Egypt. In May 2014, several senators stopped the administration of President Barack Obama from delivering 10 AH-64 Apache attack helicopters to the Egyptian Air Force. “The purpose of this caucus is not to take any one side, but to promote dialogue and understanding within the House of Representatives and to engage in deeper discussion on issues and developments in Egypt,” Rep. Loretta Sanchez, the only Democrat in the group, said. “I hope this caucus will provide a bipartisan and open venue for members to provide their perspectives.” More»
