Bennett to meet Sissi this afternoon in Sinai — Egyptian president’s office

Prime Minister Naftali Bennett is set to meet today with Egyptian President Abdel Fattah el-Sissi in the Sinai town of Sharm el-Sheikh, Sissi’s office says.

The meeting comes hours after the Taba crossing point for cars between Israel and Sinai became fully operational with no limit on the number of entry permits, with extended opening hours.

Last month, Israel scaled back its security travel advisory for the Sinai for the first time in years. The decision was made after Egyptian intelligence head Abbas Kamel visited Israel for high-level talks on Gaza.
