Peace with Egypt

The Israel-Egypt Peace Treaty was signed on March 26, 1979, following the Camp David Accords of September 18, 1978, which set the framework for a peace treaty between both countries. The framework set a timetable for establishing diplomatic relations and normalization, as well as a timetable for IDF withdrawal from the line east of El-Arish and extending to Ras Mohamed. The peace treaty “tied up loose threads” including Israeli withdrawal to the international borders of the two states.
