Turkish news agency, Anadolu reported former Israeli military intelligence chief, Amos Yadlin, as describing the incidents of July 3rd in Egypt as a military coup that favoured the Israeli occupation.

The senior Israeli official was reported as saying that these incidents had returned the Arab Spring in Egypt to the right track.

Yadlin said that the January 25th revolution and the victory of Mohamed Morsi in the presidential elections diverted the Arab Spring from the interests of the Israeli occupation.

He pointed out that Morsi had never invited Israeli officials to Egypt and had not shown any interest in establishing relations with Israel.

A few months prior to Hosni Mubarak’s deposition, Yadlin said that since the peace agreement with Egypt, Israel had succeeded in penetrating all political, economic and security sectors in the country.

He said that the aim of this was to create a state of instability in Egyptian society and to manipulate sectarian crises in order to undermine any other regime that succeeds Mubarak’s.
