Egypt’s High Administrative Court has rejected on Monday a government appeal against a previous court ruling voiding the Egyptian-Saudi Red Sea islands deal.

The verdict is final and can not be appealed, according to Ahram Online.

The maritime signed by the Egyptian and Saudi governments during a visit by King Salman bin Abdul-Aziz Al Saud that began April 7, 2016.

Under the agreement, Egypt formally recognized the Red Sea islands of Tiran and Sanafir, at the southern entrance to the Gulf of Aqaba, as belonging to Saudi Arabia.

This sparked mass protests throughout Egypt with people calling for the islands to remain as an integral part of Egypt.

The court room erupted in celebrations when the announcement was made.
