Senior Egyptian intelligence officials warned on Sunday that Iran wanted to increase its involvement in the Gaza Strip, according to a report by Al-Araby Al-Jadeed, a London-based newspaper.

The sources noted that Iran was interested in bringing about an escalation between Israel and the Palestinian Authority, in response to the tension between Jerusalem and Tehran because of the recent events in Syria.The Egyptian sources were also concerned about Qatar's growing involvement in the region, which they said was trying to become a key player in the region. They believe that Qatar's involvement is no longer financial and has taken on the role of mediator, which they feel undermines Cairo.
