The Cipher Brief spoke to Perry Cammack, a fellow in the Middle East Program at the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace, about the current state of Egypt-Israeli relations. According to Cammack, Egypt-Israeli security cooperation has “in many ways never been better” and that the relationship between Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Egyptian President Abdel Fattah el-Sisi is “probably as good as it’s ever been between heads of state of the two countries.”
