Israel complains to Egypt for ignoring terror from Egypt - including Egyptian Army post

Israel complains to Egypt for ignoring terror from Egypt - including
Egyptian Army post

Aaron Lerner Date: 22 October 2002

Israel Radio reported today that IDF Chief of Staff Brig. Gen. Moshe Yaalon
told the Knesset Foreign and Defense Affairs Committee today that Israel has
complained to Egypt for ignoring terror activities originating from its
territory.

Yaalon reported that in a recent incident when the IDF exploded a tunnel for
smuggling weapons, ammunition and terrorists from the Egyptian Sinai to
Palestinian controlled Rafah, the smoke created by the explosion could be
seen rising from an Egyptian Army position on the Egyptian side of the
border.

It should be noted that Israel typically does not give public expression to
the ongoing lack of Egyptian cooperation in preventing terror activities
originating from Egypt - even though this constitutes a flagrant violation
of the peace treaty between Israel and Egypt. This issue, for example, was
not raised when Egypt offered to "contribute" to the situation by training
Palestinian security forces.
