Prime Minister Naftali Bennett met with Egyptian Intelligence head Abbas Kamel in Jerusalem on Wednesday. Kamel is the first senior Egyptian official to meet with Bennett since he entered office, and is expected to meet with Defense Minister Benny Gantz, as well. A statement from the Prime Minister's Office said they "discussed diplomatic, security and economic aspects of Israel-Egypt relations. "In addition, they discussed Egyptian mediation in the security situation with Gaza," the PMO stated. Kamel also invited Bennett to visit Cairo in the coming weeks, in the name of Egyptian President Abdel Fatah el-Sisi. The meetings took place two days after Hamas once again shot rockets into Israel, and amid the Gazan terrorist group's threats to start another war, three months after the last round of fighting, if aid does not reach the coastal enclave soon.
