"We are trying to stand against extremists who want to impose their ideology on the people".

Asked whether cooperation between the countries could be described as the "closest ever", Sisi said: "That is correct..." "That is correct... We have a wide range of cooperation with the Israelis", he told the USA news outlet when asked if the military coordination between the countries was closer than it had ever been. But the network refused and plans to broadcast the interview on Sunday night.

Egypt was concluded in 1979 as the first Arab state to sign a peace Treaty with Israel. In February of 2018, the New York Times reported Israel was engaged in a full-blown aerial campaign against Islamic State targets in the Sinai, carried out covertly with Sisi's blessing.

The North of the Sinai Peninsula is a stronghold of radical forces.

When asked about Mr Sisi's interview with CBS on Friday, an Israeli military spokesperson told the BBC: "We do not comment on foreign reports".
