Egyptian President Abdul-Fattah Al-Sisi told an Italian newspaper that his country is ready to send troops to Palestine in order to guarantee Israel’s security and work jointly against terrorism.
In an interview with the Italian newspaper Corriere della Sera, Al-Sisi said: “We are prepared to send military forces inside a Palestinian state. They would help the local police and reassure Israelis in their role as guarantors.”
An Egyptian-brokered ceasefire deal has brought a weeks-long Israeli offensive on the Gaza Strip to an indefinite halt but the crippling onslaught had left its toll on the embattled enclave.
According to the Palestinian Health Ministry, the relentless Israeli attacks had left at least 2145 Palestinians, mostly civilians, dead since hostilities first erupted on June 7.
