Assistant secretary-general of the Arab League for Palestine affairs Mohamed Sabih said he does not rule out the possibility of Israel’s involvement in the Sinai attack on Sunday.
In a press release on Monday, Sabih said the Israeli side had known about the attack before it happened and evacuated all Israeli tourists from the Sinai a few days earlier.
He warned that foreign parties, especially Israel, are working on causing chaos in the region and bringing about a rift between the Egyptians and Palestinians.
The Arab League official, however, said that the high level of awareness and mutual trust which the Egyptian and Palestinian parties have would help frustrate such plots.
The official emphasized that the Arab League calls on all Arab parties to be alert and cautious about foreign attempts to stir up trouble in the region in order to divert the Arab nation’s attention from its core issues and its aspiration for the liberation of Palestine.
