CAIRO (Ma’an) — Israeli officials arrived in Cairo on Sunday to discuss security arrangements, Egypt’s Al-Ahram newspaper said.
The delegation, which included a top defense official, came by private jet for talks on cooperation at the Israel-Egypt border and developments in Israeli-Palestinians relations, the report said.
The officials were not identified, as they did not pass through the terminal, the paper quoted Cairo airport officials saying.
