IDF Military intelligence head Aviv Kohavi said that the IDF has prevented more than 10 recent planned terror attacks emanating from the Egyptian side of the Sinai border during remarks before the Knesset Foreign Affairs and Defense Committee.
Kohavi said that upheaval in Egypt is expected to continue for a long time, and that the victory of Muslim Brotherhood Mohamed Morsy in the presidential election has ushered in an age of political Islam.
He predicted that the military will continue to be a balancing power to the Muslim Brotherhood for the foreseeable future and did not think Egypt would get closer to Iran.
On the other hand, Kohavi expressed concern that the ascendance of the Muslim Brotherhood had led to a situation where “Hamas gained a portal, and a wall grew for the PA.”
