Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu meets with Egyptian president Abdel Fattah el-Sisi in NYC, September 26, 2018.

Egyptian President Abdel-Fattah El-Sisi stressed during a Wednesday youth conference Q&A session about domestic and international issues the necessity of accomplishing stability in the region with the importance of finding solutions away from conflicts, Al Ahram reported.

El-Sisi mentioned several countries that are currently facing distress, including Syria and Yemen, and pointed out the importance of considering the “response” by Israel if, for example, Hezbollah fighters or “other militias” were to launch an attack against Israel.

If Hezbollah launched tens of thousands of missiles at Israelis, the president said, “this would have a significant impact on the Middle East, and the region will find itself in a major conflict.”

In response to a question on the effect of the Gulf crisis on fuel price hikes globally, El-Sisi stated: “We should find solutions away from military action.” He reminded his audience that the region had been facing turmoil since 2011, and stressed the need to move away from military action.

Last week, Israeli news outlets reported that Iran, Hizbullah and Syrian intelligence are working to establish a terror infrastructure to carry out terrorist attacks against Israel – coordinated from Damascus by the intelligence headquarters of the Quds Force of the Iranian Revolutionary Guards, working in cooperation with Hezbollah and Syrian intelligence.

The infrastructure focuses on three fronts: the Golan heights, Judea, Samaria and Gaza, and countries abroad.

Hezbollah has also recently intensified its presence on the Lebanese border front.
