(Communicated by the MFA Spokesperson)
Israel wishes to convey its condolences to Egypt and to the Egyptian people on the killing of security forces servicemen by terrorists. This barbaric attack caused the death of Egyptians, and was meant to slay Israelis as well. Moreover, it aimed at shattering the peace agreement between Israel and Egypt.
Peace between the two countries has been, and still is, an interest common to both peoples; Israel will continue to act in a spirit of cooperation with Egypt in order to preserve this vital interest and ensure security and stability in the region.
