The spokesman of Egypt’s Foreign Ministry, Bader Abdel Aati, said in a statement that Egypt demanded that Israel “have control over itself” so the tension between the two sides would not increase and remain “under control.”
The Egyptian statement came after Israel’s response to the kidnapping of three settlers that it would increase its security presence in the West Bank in the coming few days.
