A Cairo court has given the Egyptian government legal clearance to allow natural gas exports to Israel, according to a report by Reuters.
The Higher Administrative Court cancelled a lower court’s verdict to stop exports, which has long been the subject of controversy.
The court also ruled Egypt should monitor the price and quantity of its exports and ensure it met local energy needs before exporting.
