Senior Defense Ministry official Amos Gilad praised Egyptian security forces' operation against terror in Sinai. "For the first time, we see a determined struggle against terrorism in Egypt's Sinai, unrelated to the interests of Israel. The operation of the Egyptians is impressive." He made the comments during a speech at the Interdisciplinary Center Herzliya.
Gilad added, "The Egyptians now recognize Hamas as a threat and we enjoy this deterrence." (Yoav Zitun)
