Egyptian President Abdel Fatah Al-Sisi claimed that the flooding of the tunnels between Gaza and Egypt is being carried out in coordination with the Palestinian Authority.
Benjamin Netanyahu praised Egyptian President Abdel-Fattah el-Sissi for seeking a resolution for the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, urging Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas to resume peace talks immediately. “With all that in mind, we can sense how hard and how complicated” the challenge is.

Sisi also assured them that Egypt is going towards a service economy, and that their investments in Egypt would have a significant impact for them and the country at the same time, he added.
Sisi told the investors that the government is working seriously on developing infrastructure to serve the investment sector, Salman said.
In the interview, Sisi said Syria should not be divided when hostilities end and warned that the collapse of Bashar Assad’s regime could result in all of its weaponry ending up in the hands “of the terrorists” and would “pose a serious threat to the rest of the region, and this is what we fear”.

In a presidential statement released yesterday, Al-Sisi said the measures taken by Egypt aim to secure its eastern border and will not harm Palestinians in the Gaza Strip.
Resolving the Palestinian question, Sissi said in the interview, could “change the face of the region and … bring about enormous improvement to the situation”.
Earlier this month, Netanyahu said he was willing to meet Abbas “right now” to resume peace negotiations without preconditions.
