Most Egyptians support the “stable” peace agreement with Israel

Egypt’s peace treaty with Israel is “stable and permanent” and supported by most Egyptians, President Abdel Fattah El Sisi said yesterday at the World Youth Forum, according to the Times of Israel. El Sisi’s remarks come as the new Egyptian ambassador to Israel, Khaled Azmi, arrived in Tel Aviv yesterday.

Separately, Egypt’s efforts to broker a truce between Israel and Hamas have received Fatah’s blessing, the newspaper reports. However, Palestinian Authority officials insist that any truce between Israel and Hamas must be preceded by a reconciliation agreement between rival Palestinian factions Fatah and Hamas. Qatar is apparently also playing a role in pushing Hamas and Israel towards an agreement over Gaza, particularly as it ships fuel to provide Gaza with electricity and pays salaries to the strip’s civil servants, Amos Harel writes for Haaretz.
