Egyptian officials notify Israel and the various Palestinian factions that the indirect negotiations scheduled for 10/27 to continue discussions left from the 8/26 open-ended cease-fire will be postponed to late 11/2014. The postponement comes in response to the 10/24 attack in Sinai and the closure of the Rafah border crossing. Egypt will be responsible for setting a specific date for the talks to resume.
