Israeli envoy leaves Cairo after Sinai talks

An Israeli envoy left Cairo early Thursday after a short visit to Egypt.

The envoy, the second to visit the Arab country in two days, arrived on Wednesday for talks with Egyptian officials on developments in the Sinai Peninsula.

This is the fourth visit by an Israeli envoy to Egypt this month.

Two Israeli envoys had visited Cairo on October 11 and 17 for talks with Egyptian officials with a third Israeli military envoy arriving on Tuesday.

Egypt's Sinai Peninsula, which shares borders with both Israel and the Gaza Strip, has witnessed mounting violence against police and army personnel since the July 3 ouster of Mohamed Morsi, the country's first freely-elected president, by the military.

The Egyptian army is currently carrying out what military experts are calling the largest military operation on the peninsula since Egypt's 1973 war with Israel with the stated aim of combating "militancy and terrorism."
