Egypt’s Foreign Ministry spokesman issues a statement blasting far-right Finance Minister Bezalel Smotrich after the latter called on Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu earlier today not to send an Israeli representative to Cairo for hostage talks with the “Nazi enemy.”

“It is unfortunate and disgraceful that the Israeli finance minister, Smotrich, continues to make irresponsible and inflammatory statements, only reveal a hunger for killing and destruction and sabotage any attempt to contain the crisis in the Gaza Strip,” the spokesman says.
