IP- A report in the New Arab suggests that Egypt is talking to the Houthis and the Iranian leadership to contain the rapidly rising fallout of Israel’s war on Gaza.

Iran PressAfrica:  The London-based outlet cited unnamed informed Egyptian sources as saying that Cairo is hurting from the effects of the Houthi attacks on trade through the Suez Canal, and looks to end the war as the root cause of the issue.

Egypt has reportedly held talks at the level of security officials with the Houthis and has told them it would not participate in any air strikes against them and has been told that Egyptian ships will be safe since the Houthis are interested in Israel-linked ships in the Red Sea.

The report said Cairo is making progress in talks with Iran as well, and may soon host Iranian Foreign Minister Hossein Amirabdollahian.
