  • Description

    Egyptian War Minister General Mohamed El Gamassy led a delegation of high-ranking Egyptians to inspect the Ras Sudar oilfields on Wednesday (19 November) ... his first visit since the oilfields were handed over to Egypt by Israel.

    Israel turned them over the United Nations Peacekeeping Force in the area on 14 November as part of the interim accord reached between Egypt and Israel.

    On 16 November, the oil fields were returned to the Egyptians. They have been in Israeli hands for eight years. On the following day (17 November) the first shipment of oil was taken by tanker from Ras Sudar to refineries in the Suez area.

    Ras Sudar oilfields pump approximately 4,000 barrels of crude oil a day.

    Included in the Egyptian delegation which visited on Wednesday were Eisha Ratab, Minister of Social Affairs, Sayed Fahmy, Interior Minister, Fouad Mohieldine, Health Minister and Hamed Mahmoud, Minister of Local Government.

    They were greeted by local officials and Arab tribes, most of whom were evacuated after the Israeli takeover during the 1967 war.

    On 30 November, Israel has also agreed to handover the Abu Rudeis oilfields to Egypt.
