(CNN) – Egypt called for a cease-fire Monday between Israel and Palestinian factions in Gaza, to stop the bloodshed and to project the innocent.
Palestinian groups in Gaza had called on Egypt to intervene and pressure Israel.
"Egypt shall receive guarantees from both sides of their commitment to implement what has been agreed upon, and shall follow up on its implementation and engage with either side in the case of any action that impinges on its stability," the Ministry of Foreign Affairs said in a statement.
The Israeli cabinet called an emergency meeting Monday to consider Egypt's ceasefire proposal.
