RAMALLAH, July 14 (JMCC) - Israel's recent demolition of unofficial Palestinian structures in East Jerusalem is the reason behind Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak's postponement of his meeting with Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, reported the Egyptian Al-Shorouq on Wednesday.
The report comes as Israeli officials cited Mubarak's deteriorating health earlier Wednesday as the possible reason for repeated deferments if the meeting with Netanyahu, which was supposed to take place this week.
Speaking with Al-Shorouq on Wednesday, a senior Egyptian official denied reports of Mubarak's ailing health, saying the meeting was pushed back due to provocative moves made by Israel.
