Egyptian warplanes”sometimes” use Israeli airspace to carry out airstrikes on terrorists in the framework of the ongoing anti-terrorist campaign in Egypt’s North Sinai region, President Abdel Fattah el-Sisi stressed in an interview with CBS’ 60 Minutes. During the same interview, the President confirmed that the Egyptian military is in contact with Israel over its operation against terrorists in North Sinai.
Over the past few years, Israeli media outlets have disseminated multiple rumors speculating that Israelli jets carry out strikes on terrorist targets in Egypt. However, these rumors have never been denounced by the Egyptian military. Now, it appears that it’s in fact Egyptian jets use Israeli airspace.
