Israel Reopens Embassy in Egypt
Israel has reopened its embassy in Egypt, four years after it was stormed by dozens of protesters in violence that led to the evacuation of the Israeli ambassador.
The Israeli foreign ministry said in a statement on Wednesday that its director-general, Dore Gold, had travelled to Cairo to “rededicate” the embassy.
“The Israeli embassy in Egypt is back in operation today,” the ministry statement said.
“Today, exactly four years ago, the Israeli diplomats were forced to leave the Israeli embassy.” Details
