According to sources at the Cairo International Airport, Israeli ambassador in Cairo Yaakov Amitai will leave Cairo at 11:30pm (Cairo local time) Wednesday.

He will most likely leave on Jordanian airlines, the sources added. Amitai, who has been Israeli ambassador to Egypt since December 2011, was summoned an hour earlier by the Egyptian Foreign Ministry, which sought to convey the Egyptian authorities' condemnation of the Israeli air raids on Gaza which killed top Hamas military commander Ahmed al-Jaabari and left 6 others dead and at least 40 injured.
