Delegation arrives in Cairo to resume talks over embassy attack and Palestinian issue

An Israeli delegation arrived in Egypt by private jet on Sunday for a new chapter of talks with Egyptian officials following attacks on one of the Israeli embassy’s facilities last month.

The 9 September mass protests ended in chaos after demonstrators headed to the Israeli embassy, ‎brought down a wall in front of the building and ‎broke into one of the embassy’s offices.‎

Later, protesters clashed fiercely with Central Security Forces (CSF). Three people ‎were killed in the ensuing violence and the Israeli ambassador flew home.‎

The Israeli ambassador returned to Egypt after tensions cooled down, and ‎talks between both countries have been underway since shortly after the clashes. ‎

‎The delegation intends to resumes talks over the embassy incident ‎and the Palestinian issue. ‎

The Israeli delegates’ identities remain undisclosed, according to Cairo Airport officials.‎
