The Israeli newspaper “Maariv” reported that Egyptian officials told the director of US intelligence, William Burns, that the United States must exert serious pressure on Israel in order to stop its operation in the city of Rafah, and return to serious negotiations, otherwise Cairo “will work to cancel the Camp David agreement.”

The Israeli newspaper pointed out that there is an escalation in the Egyptian media tone, demanding the cancellation of the agreement, which prompted senior Israeli officials to contact their Egyptian counterparts in order to know the nature, size, and scope of these demands.

Meanwhile, for the first time since the beginning of the war on Gaza, Egypt is asking aid truck drivers to evacuate the Rafah crossing area from the Egyptian side, while continuing to strengthen security measures there, which can be explained by fears of a security deterioration in the border area.

A few days ago, Egypt warned of the dangers of an Israeli military operation in the city of Rafah, in the southern Gaza Strip, as part of the ongoing military offensive on the Strip, which has been going on for about 7 months.

The Egyptian Foreign Ministry described any military operation in Rafah as an “escalatory act” and called on Israel to avoid escalation “at this very sensitive time” in the course of ceasefire negotiations.

International positions condemning the Israeli military operation in Rafah continue amid warnings of its dangerous repercussions on more than one million Palestinians forced by Israel to flee to the area south of the Gaza Strip.
