A team of five Israeli diplomats, headed by Consul General to Egypt Yaakov Dvir, visited Cairo for a few hours on Tuesday, in search of possible new locations for the Israeli Embassy, Germany's DPA news agency reported.


According to the report, the mission spent only a few hours in the Egyptian capital, exploring alternative locations for the facility.
