Sinai was a major problem, Netanyahu said. The new government in Cairo “is having trouble exerting its authority over Sinai. We saw this in the two bombings of the gas pipeline there. Terror groups have set up shop in Sinai, and they are getting stronger because of Sinai's connection to Gaza. Hamas in Egypt is getting stronger, and Hamas has moved many of its activities from Syria to Egypt. We are concerned over what will happen in the region, especially with the countries on the 'peace fronts,' Egypt and Jordan,” Netanyahu added.
