Defense Ministry Diplomatic-Security Bureau head Amos Gilad said that relations with Egypt are strategically important and need to be preserved, saying that "nobody in the security establishment or the IDF had any intention of harming Egyptian policemen or soldiers," in an interview with Israel Radio Saturday morning.

Gilad added that Israel has not received any request from Egypt to discuss changing the peace agreement between Jerusalem and Cairo in place for over 30 years. He described the peace between the two countries as "strategic asset" and "fundamental."
