The operation that took place yesterday is the first in nearly three decades
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu described the incident on the Egyptian border as a serious and unusual attack, and it will be thoroughly investigated. “We have sent a clear and clear message to Egypt in which we expect a joint and comprehensive investigation, which is part of the important security cooperation between the two countries that has been going on for years,” Netanyahu said at the start of the weekly cabinet meeting.
Netanyahu also pledged to draw all necessary conclusions regarding the military operations along the border fence.
Netanyahu stressed that Israel will update the operational rules and methods, as well as the means to curb smuggling and ensure that such tragic attacks will not be repeated, in the words of the Israeli Prime Minister.
Hebrew media reported that Cairo and Tel Aviv are in talks to hold an urgent meeting with the participation of security officials from both sides, after yesterday’s operation on the Egyptian border that resulted in the killing of three Israeli soldiers by an Egyptian policeman who infiltrated into Israel, according to the Israeli army.
Israeli Defense Minister Yoav Gallant discussed last night by phone with his Egyptian counterpart, Muhammad Zaki, the incident at the border with Egypt, and discussed with him cooperation in the investigation of this “dangerous attack”, as he put it. The two ministers emphasized maintaining constant contact and ensuring cooperation between the concerned authorities to prevent events of this kind in the future.
