EGYPT MAINTAINS PLANS FOR ATTACK ON ISRAEL

EGYPT MAINTAINS PLANS FOR ATTACK ON ISRAEL

JERUSALEM [MENL] -- Egypt has been the only Arab state that has maintained
plans to attack Israel, a senior Israeli parliamentarian says.

Yuval Steinitz, chairman of the Knesset Foreign Affairs and Defense
Committee, said Egypt has been developing its military in an effort to
ensure capability to attack Israel. Steinitz said Egypt's operational plans
and exercises have focused on striking Israel.

"Egypt is the only country in the region that is preparing for the
possibility of a military confrontation with Israel," Steinitz said.

Steinitz, whose committee obtains weekly briefings by Israel's military
intelligence, said Egypt has developed or procured missiles that could
strike Israeli military and civilian targets. He said the Egyptian targets
include Israeli air force bases.
