A new Israeli ambassador is expected to be installed in Egypt.
Yaakov Amitai, a diplomat with extensive experience in the Middle East and East Africa, was scheduled to depart for Cairo the week of Dec. 12 and present his credentials to Egypt’s interim military government, Israeli sources said.
Amitai replaces Yitzhak Levanon, whose tenure was curtailed by the mobbing of Israel’s Cairo embassy in October.
