Egypt's 'ominous' threat to suspend peace deal over Rafah offensive should be taken seriously by Israel

Egypt is threatening to suspend the peace deal with Israel over Israel's offensive in Gaza, which could have grave diplomatic consequences. The peace deal, forged in 1978, has been a pillar of stability in the region. Reports differ on the details of Egypt's threat, but it is believed that they will suspend the treaty if Israel occupies the Philadelphi Corridor or carries out their offensive in Rafah. International concern is mounting about the impending Rafah offensive, as civilians have been displaced and humanitarian support is lacking. The sincerity of Egypt's threat is questioned, but the suffering in Gaza is undermining support for the Egyptian regime. Israel and Washington should take Egypt's threat seriously.
