Egypt does not intend to stop Palestinian attacks from the Gaza Strip after Israel withdraws from the territory, an Egyptian official said. “Don’t expect Egypt to be your policeman in Gaza,” Egypt’s ambassador to Israel, Assef Ibrahim, told the Jerusalem Post on Tuesday. “Egypt will not play this role. This is basically an Israeli problem and an Israeli question you have to solve yourselves.”
