The Israeli army announced, on Sunday (22), that one of its tanks accidentally hit an Egyptian position near the border with the Gaza Strip.
The army said, “An Israeli army tank accidentally opened fire and hit an Egyptian position adjacent to the border in the Kerem Shalom area.”
“The incident is being investigated and the details are being analysed. The Israeli army expresses its regret over the incident,” she said in a statement, without providing further details.
There is no information about whether the bombing caused any casualties.
Egypt’s diplomatic role
Egypt, which hosted the peace summit last weekend, wants to play an important diplomatic role in the conflict. Egypt was the first Arab country to sign a peace agreement with Israel in 1979, and since then Cairo has served as a regular mediator between Israel and the Palestinians, including Hamas.
Furthermore, Egypt has the only entry point into the Gaza Strip that is not controlled by Israel, at Rafah.
