Egypt is ready to send peacekeepers to a future Palestinian state to ensure Israel that no attacks are launched on Israeli citizens, Egyptian President Abdel-Fattah al-Sissi said in an interview to an Italian newspaper on Sunday.
“We are ready to send military troops inside a Palestinian state. They would help local police and reassure the Israelis through their [peace] guarantee role. Not forever, of course. For the time necessary to re-establish trust,” Sissi told the Corriere della Sera newspaper ahead of meetings on Monday with Italian leaders and Pope Francis.
