Israeli envoy in Egypt for talks on Gaza cease-fire

[Updated 2:16 pm. ET] An Israeli special envoy arrived in Egypt for talks with Egyptian intelligence chief Mohammed Shehata, who is trying to bring about a cease-fire between Israel and Hamas, the Egyptian government said Sunday.

[Updated 11:22 a.m. ET] The Israeli military killed Yehiya Bia, one of the heads of Hamas' rocket-launching unit, in a targeted strike Sunday in Gaza, the Israel Defense Forces said. Hamas did not immediately confirm the report.

[Posted 7:08 a.m. ET] Israeli artillery flew into Syria early Sunday after rounds coming from Syria struck an Israeli army patrol in the Golan Heights, the Israel Defense Forces said.

The IDF reported no deaths or injuries, but said one military vehicle was damaged.

Israel said it did not know whether Syrian government or rebel forces fired the rounds that landed in the Golan Heights.

As of Sunday morning, the state-run Syrian Arab News Agency had not reported on such back-and-forth firing.

    No man knows the day or the hour? Because the light is called Day. Why did man of the world change the times and the seasons? Who put the time forward one hour ahead, and pushed back the time for an hour? Be honest! Time change began in Jerusalem, by man's own wicked hands their works.

    Mandate, means Pope a man creates his own dates. *Deuteronomy 31:28 Gather unto me all the elders of your tribes, and your officers, that I may speak these words in their ears, and call heaven and earth to record against them. *Matthew 24:30 and then shall all the tribes of the earth mourn, and they shall see the Son of man coming in the clouds of heaven with power and great glory.

    Are you tired yet of asking why being in weariness? The answer is to read outloud Jeremiah 5:19. Who ever seperates grace from truth, truth from grace, mark them.
