Israel's military operation against the Gaza Strip will come to an end Tuesday, Egyptian President Mohamed Morsi said.

"The aggression against Gaza is ending today. Without compromise or capitulation," presidential publication Marsi-al-Yaum quoted Morsi as saying.

Morsi told journalists last week his government was in contact with both sides in the conflict and there was "some basis to hope for a swift ceasefire".

A decision on whether to launch a ground invasion of Gaza has been put off by at least a day to give the Egyptians time to broker a ceasefire with Hamas, Israeli's Haaretz reported earlier Tuesday.
