Netanyahu participates in ceremony at Tel Aviv Egypt embassy

July 11, 2019

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has attended a ceremony at the Egyptian Embassy in Tel Aviv.

“Netanyahu will participate in a reception hosted by the Egyptian Embassy in Tel Aviv, in celebration of Egyptian National Day,” the Israeli Ministry of Foreign Affairs posted on Twitter.

July 23 is a national holiday celebrated by Egypt at Egyptian embassies and consulates across the world.

Egyptian embassies abroad celebrate this holiday ahead of the date as a tradition in Egyptian diplomacy.

Egyptian-Israeli relations have developed considerably since Abdel-Fattah al-Sisi assumed power in mid-2014.
