Shin Bet chief visits Egypt amid reports of strained ties
Shin Bet chief Ronen Bar is visiting Egypt amid reports of strained ties between Jerusalem and Cairo in the wake of an Egyptian-brokered ceasefire to end recent fighting in Gaza between Israel and Palestinian terrorists.
During the trip, Bar is meeting with Egyptian spymaster Abbas Kamel, Hebrew media says.
The Shin Bet won’t comment on the trip.
