Hady Amr will take part in talks with Israeli, Palestinian and UN officials and reinforce what US diplomats said was the need for a "sustainable calm".

As it was reported earlier, on late May 11, a huge missile attack occurred in Tel Aviv and its vicinities. HAMAS movement claimed the responsibility, stating that 130 missiles were fired in the direction of the Israeli capital city. According to the outlet, the alarm sirens blared in practically every large settlement in Israel, as the rockets fell in the downtown of Tel Aviv and its suburbs; it became arguably the largest missile attack on Israel so far. The shooting began at about 8.45 p.m. local time. The missiles fell in several central districts of the country. Some projectiles hit their targets, but most of the rockets were downed by the anti-missile defense system, the Iron Dome.

According to Aviv Kochavi, Chief of the General Staff of the IDF, the Israeli Defence Forces (IDF) landed attacks on more than 500 targets in the Gaza Strip, killing dozens of Palestinian militants.
