Israeli officials told Washington it was making ‘a strategic error’ in undermining el-Sissi, was partially heeded, Israeli TV report claims

Israel argued “directly and bluntly” with the Obama administration in recent days over US aid cuts to Egypt, telling the administration it was making “a strategic error” in reducing financial assistance to Cairo in the wake of the military’s ouster of president Mohammed Morsi, Israeli TV reported Monday night.

The unusually frank Israeli intervention, the Channel 2 report said, was partially successful, in that US funding of relevance to military strongman Gen. Abdel-Fattah el-Sissi’s fight against Islamist terrorists in the Sinai is not being affected by the cutback.

 

However, other planned cuts in aid to the Egyptian military are going ahead, to Israel’s open dismay, the report said, quoting unnamed Israeli government sources.
