New Shin Bet chief Ronen Bar traveled to Egypt today for talks with Egyptian spymaster Abbas Kamel, according to Hebrew media reports.

Bar was part of an Israeli delegation that also reportedly included Prime Minister Naftali Bennett’s national security adviser, Eyal Hulata. It was Bar’s first trip to Egypt since being approved as the security service’s new leader last month.

There is no immediate statement from the Shin Bet or the Prime Minister’s Office.
