The official said Egypt already has implemented security measures that take into account an Israeli strike against Iran within the next month or so.
The Egyptian estimation could not be verified by officials in Jerusalem contacted by WND.
Also, officials in the Palestinian Authority said they did not have any indication of a Middle East war in the summer.
Mahmoud al-Zahar, Hamas chief in Gaza, told WND he believes a Middle East confrontation is likely, possibly in the next few months.
"You don't need to be a fortuneteller to see that Israel is planning something soon," said al-Zahar, speaking on his cell phone from Gaza.
Egypt last year granted Israel permission to conduct naval exercises off Egyptian coastal waters.
