Egypt threatened to abrogate 'peace treaty' if there was a Gaza ground op
Here's another reason that probably made the government of Israel think twice about invading Gaza on the ground: Egypt threatened to abrogate the 'peace treaty'
if Israel invaded Gaza.
Wednesday's cease-fire agreement between Israel and Hamas, Egypt
threatened that an IDF ground operation into the Gaza Strip would
endanger the peace treaty between Jerusalem and Cairo, Channel 2
reported on Thursday.
According to the report, Egyptian President
Mohamed Morsi refused to speak directly with Israeli representatives
during the cease-fire negotiations, despite the US urging him to do so.
This ought to make Israel think again about the value of pieces of paper that claim to bring 'peace.'
