Two nations with more in common than a border. Terrorism in Sinai is a threat to both nations. Hamas vexes both nation. Why the trouble with an honest investigation to elucidate and remediate the problem? The UN observers report is pretty clear. Israeli forces entered Egypt in hot pursuit. The terrorists were withdrawing past Egyptian positions and fire-fights between the Egyptians and terrorists ensued. When Israeli forces and Egyptian forces became engaged the terrorists go away. In combat things can get VERY confused really fast. There is no credible evidence that IDF elements ever intended to engage and kill Egyptian forces. The IDF did not ask permission to enter Egyptian territory, nor was any effort expended to alert the Egyptians and coordinate with them. Given other instances with other nations it appears that the real issue is Mr. Netanyahu's inability to admit error no matter how understandable and irrefutable that error is.
