Ramzy Baroud on Cairo ceasefire talks

Violence resumed on Friday in Gaza as al-Quds Brigade rockets hit Israel, during ceasefire talks
Cairo was the setting for previous ceasefire talks in 2012 with ousted President Mohamed Morsi (MEE)

As violence resumes in Gaza, the Israelis have withdrawn their delegates from the Cairo ceasefire talks saying they won't negotiate "under fire."

Though these are not the first time ceasefire talks have been held in Cairo, the circumstances are very different from previous occasions.

Ramzy Baroud, a consultant at Middle East Eye, discusses the ceasefire talks between Palestinian and Israeli delegates in Cairo, the political influence of Egypt and how the circumstances have changed for Hamas.
