Egyptian Initiative (unofficial translation)*


This ceasefire agreement is an unofficial translation and was not accepted by all parties. The lighter text below was accepted by both parties and read by the Egyptian Minister of Foreign Affairs at a press conference on 26 August 2014:

"In order to preserve the lives of innocent people and prevent bloodshed, and in accordance with the Egyptian Initiative of 2014 and the Cairo 2012 memorandums of understanding, Egypt has invited the Israeli and Palestinian sides to a comprehensive and mutual ceasefire with the opening of the crossings between the Gaza Strip and Israel to allow a speedy entry of humanitarian aid and relief, reconstruction supplies and fishing permissions from six nautical miles. Indirect negotiations over other topics are to start in a month. As both sides accepted the ceasefire, it shall start at 7pm Cairo time on 26 August 2014."
