Israel to investigate historic mass grave of Egyptian soldiers in Jerusalem

Israel will investigate media reports of an unmarked mass grave in Jerusalem believed to contain the remains of Egyptian soldiers killed in the 1967 war, Israeli Prime Minister Yair Lapid told President Abdel Fattah El Sisi in a phone call, according to a statement from Ittihadiya. Israeli media Haaretz and Yedioth Ahronoth earlier published archival data and accounts on dozens of Egyptian commandos believed to be buried under what is now an Israeli tourist attraction.
