CAIRO — An Egyptian court on Saturday overturned a lower court ruling that called for a halt to natural gas exports to Israel, saying the deliveries should continue unhindered.

The case arose in 2008 when opposition groups filed suit that called for a halt to the shipments, alleging the gas was being sold too cheaply.

An appeals court ruled that gas deliveries to Israel should continue, but ordered the government to review the price and quantity of gas.
