Italian foreign minister Federica Mogherini pledged every effort to help resolve the Gaza crisis when she visits Cairo Thursday. After meeting Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu Wednesday, they held a joint news conference in the Knesset. She urged Hamas to reverse its position on the Cairo ceasefire proposal after she toured rocket-blasted sites in Israel. Netanyahu said Israel sought international support for the demilitarization of Gaza and removal of Hamas rocket stocks. Italy currently holds the rotating presidency of EU.
