Israelis Visit Egypt for Talks: Report

A group of four Israeli military officials has traveled to Cairo to hold talks with Egyptian authorities on regional developments and security issues, a report says.

The Egyptian al-Ahram quoted sources at the Cairo International Airport as saying that the Israelis, whose identity has not been revealed, arrived in the country on Sunday for a short visit.

The Israeli group apparently traveled to Egypt in order to discuss the situation in the Sinai Peninsula and security on the Egypt-Israel border.

Ties between Cairo and Tel Aviv deteriorated after the Egyptian revolution of January 25.

In August, six Egyptian border officers were killed in an attack by Israeli forces.

Egyptian protesters stormed the Israeli embassy in Cairo in September and destroyed a part of a barricade wall around the building in the process. The Israeli ambassador to Egypt, Yitzhak Levanon, fled Cairo a few hours later.

Levanon, however, returned to Egypt a few days later.

This comes while the Egyptian demonstrators have repeatedly called for cutting ties with Israel and the expulsion of the Israeli ambassador.
