Benjamin Netanyahu, the former Israeli prime minister, revealed that he had held 6 (secret) meetings with Egyptian President Abdel Fattah el-Sisi in the Sinai.

Netanyahu said that his secret meetings with Sisi began in 2011 (that is, before the coup against President Mohamed Morsi and the fall of the Hosni Mubarak regime), in addition to their public meeting in 2017. According to the Israeli Kan channel.

Netanyahu exposes Sisi and reveals secret meetings

Netanyahu’s statement came in conjunction with Sisi’s meeting with the current Israeli Prime Minister, Naftali Bennett. This official visit is the first of its kind for an Israeli prime minister in nearly 10 years, and comes after several normalization agreements that Israel has succeeded in achieving with a number of Arab countries.

Netanyahu did not reveal more details about the secret meetings, but it is remarkable that he said that they began in 2011, the same year in which the country witnessed the January revolution that toppled former President Hosni Mubarak.

Al-Sisi served as Head of Military Intelligence (2010-2012), then became Minister of Defense (2012-2014) and then President of Egypt (since 2014).

Sisi met Netanyahu behind Morsi’s back

In this context, the Palestinian researcher on Israeli affairs, Saleh Al-Naami, said in a tweet on his Twitter account, that “from Netanyahu’s words, it is clear that Sisi met him since he was the head of military intelligence, including meetings behind Morsi’s back,” according to him.

Al-Nuaimi added: “If we take into account two secret meetings in Cairo and Aqaba, and a public meeting in New York, it becomes clear that Sisi met Netanyahu at least 9 times. The question: What is the justification?”

The Palestinian political analyst wondered: “Why was Sisi specifically meeting with Netanyahu, even though he was just a director of military intelligence, and there were many leaders greater than him, and why was Netanyahu the one who met Sisi and not a Zionist official in return for him in the position?”

For its part, Cairo did not comment until Tuesday morning on what Netanyahu said about his secret meetings with Sisi.

Meeting Sisi and Bennett

Bennett had described the meeting he had with Sisi as “very important and very good,” noting that they had laid the groundwork for “deepening ties.”

At the end of the meeting in the Egyptian resort of Sharm el-Sheikh, Bennett was quoted by the official Kan channel and the Israeli newspaper Yedioth Ahronoth as saying: “The meeting was very important and very good. During the meeting, first of all, we laid the foundation for deepening ties and promoting the interests of our country.”

This visit comes while Egypt is cooperating with Israel in the security and energy fields. In 2019, Sisi said during an interview on the American “60 Minutes” program, that the Egyptian army is working in coordination with Israel against “terrorists” in the Sinai, in the northeast of the country, describing this The cooperation is considered the “closest” ever between the two countries.

The level of development in the economic and trade relations between the two countries reached, last year, Egypt importing natural gas, for the first time, from Israel to be liquefied and exported to Europe, under a 15-year agreement worth $15 billion.

Israel has also bought gas from Egypt, but the onshore pipelines have been repeatedly targeted by attacks by extremist groups in the Sinai in 2011 and 2012.
