Sisi Says Us Embassy Move In Israel Causes Regional Instability


CAIRO – Egypt’s President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi said on Wednesday the move of the U.S. Embassy in Israel to Jerusalem would cause “some instability” in the region, in his first public comments on the issue.

Israeli troops shot dead dozens of Palestinian protesters on the Gaza border on Monday when the high-profile opening of the U.S. Embassy in Jerusalem by the administration of President Donald Trump raised tension to boiling point after weeks of anti-Israeli demonstrations.

“On the move of the U.S. Embassy, we have said this issue will have negative reprecussions on Arab and Islamic public opinion and leads to a kind of dissatisfaction and some instability, and will have repercussions on the Palestinian cause,” Sisi, a staunch U.S. ally, said in televised remarks at a youth conference.
