Far from the media’s eyes, tension is simmering between Israel and Egypt, according to the Zionist newspaper, Haaretz.
Haaretz clarified that the tension is caused by the Israeli rejection of the Egyptian proposal pertaining deescalation in the occupied West Bank after Gaza ceasefire.
The paper detailed that, during the phone call between the Egyptian President Abdul Fattah Al-Sisi and the Israeli PM Yair Lapid, the former demanded that the latter orders deescalation in the occupied West Bank.
However, the statement issued by the Zionist premiership after the phone call did not mention the Egyptian demand, which outraged the officials in Cairo.
On August 5, the Zionist enemy launched a large-scale aggression on the blockaded Gaza Strip, killing dozens of people, including Taysir al-Jabari, a senior commander of the Palestinian resistance movement of Islamic Jihad, and fifteen children.
The Israeli strikes prompted the al-Quds Brigades, the Islamic Jihad’s military wing, to respond by firing hundreds of rockets toward the occupied territories, forcing Tel Aviv to seek out a ceasefire in order to stop the retaliatory attacks.
