But don’t be concerned. Amos Gilad, a senior Israeli Defense Ministry official, said: “There is constant and in-depth dialogue with the Egyptians.”
“Militants in Egyptian Sinai Fire Rockets Into Israel but Do No Damage,” by Isabel Kershner for the New York Times, April 17:
JERUSALEM “” Two rockets fired from the Egyptian Sinai Peninsula struck the southern Israeli resort of Eilat on Wednesday, causing no damage or injuries, according to the Israeli military. The first such attack on that city in a year, it underscored the continuing threat from militants operating across the desert border.
But rather than serving as a new source of tension between Israel and Egypt under President Mohamed Morsi, a former leader of the Muslim Brotherhood, the attack prompted Israeli officials to speak of close cooperation between the countries over what they view as a joint interest.
“There is constant and in-depth dialogue with the Egyptians,” Amos Gilad, a senior Israeli Defense Ministry official, told Israel Radio after the attack. “Egypt considers any kind of terror to be a threat to Egypt, and it is very committed to the peace agreement with us. This commitment has improved and is more intensive.”
Mr. Gilad added: “The rocket fire is meant to kill and to cause panic and to complicate our relationship with Egypt. We will make every effort to prevent this.”…
And I am sure that Egypt’s Muslim Brotherhood regime will make every effort as well.
