Chairman of the Knesset Foreign Affairs and Defense Committee Shaul Mofaz said that the IDF must prepare for a scenario in which the peace treaty between Israel and Egypt is canceled, speaking during a tour at the Tel Hashomer IDF induction base near Tel Aviv on Sunday.

"Israel's central goal is to preserve the peace treaties with Egypt and Jordan," Mofaz said. That said, he added, "The IDF needs to be prepared for any changes in the situation and to be prepared for the day after elections in Egypt."

"Today the street is setting the agenda and the Supreme Council of the Armed Forces is having trouble maintaining control," adding, "At the same time, radical actors in Egypt are being strengthened."
