Egyptian President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi has invited Israeli Prime Minister Natfali Bennett to visit Egypt in the coming weeks, the Israeli prime minister's office said, months after Cairo brokered a cease-fire ending Israel’s deadly conflict with militant group Hamas. 

Abbas Kamel, the director of the Egyptian General Intelligence Directorate, issued the invite on Sisi’s behalf when meeting with Bennett Wednesday in Jerusalem. Kamel is the highest-ranking Egyptian official to visit Israel since the formation of Israel’s new coalition government in June.
