Israel’s president has expressed serious concerns about the “disastrous returns” of the clear Israeli support for the military coup in Egypt, Israeli radio has reported. Shimon Peres also expressed his worries about Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s efforts to recruit international political and financial support for the move.

According to the report, Peres is not sure that the military coup against President Mohamed Morsi has been successful. He said that Israel would be the first country that Egypt might punish if Morsi returns to power and that might see Egypt cutting all kinds of security ties with Israel at the very least. In fact, Peres warned, a future response might be the cancellation of the Camp David Peace Treaty.
