Israeli Ambassador to Egypt Isaac Levanon on Sunday said Israel is considering moving its embassy in Cairo to another location in the city, Israel Radio reported.

"Israel is considering moving the embassy building in Egypt to another location over concerns for the safety of its diplomats," said Levanon, according to the report.

Israeli diplomats were evacuated from the Embassy in Cairo in September when hundreds of Egyptian protesters attacked the complex. The protesters were incensed by the accidental killing of five Egyptian soldiers by IDF forces pursuing terrorists across the border following a complicated terrorist attack near Eilat. 

Levanon said it is still not known when Israeli diplomats are expected to return to Cairo, the report said.
