JNS.org – Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu reaffirmed Israel’s joint commitment to fighting terrorism with Egypt following a wave of Islamic State-affiliated terror attacks in Egypt’s Sinai Peninsula.

“We are partners with Egypt and with many other countries in the Middle East and in the world in the fight against extremist Islamist terror,” Netanyahu said during a visit with Israeli terror victims in Jerusalem.

“The terror is knocking at our doors. ISIS is not only on our border in the Golan, but it is also in Egypt, across from Rafah, directly at our border,” added Netanyahu.
