President Donald Trump will host Egyptian President Abdel-Fatteh El Sisi at the White House on April 9 for talks on “building on our robust military, economic and counterterrorism cooperation” for the sake of “shared priorities in the Middle East,” the White House announced on Friday.

DEBKAfile: The visit was announced while Egyptian intelligence officers were again striving to broker some sort of truce between Israel and Hamas to avert a broad Israeli military campaign for halting Palestinian terror emanating from the Gaza Strip.
