Sinai Militants Try To Attack Israel

By Haaretz

Armed militants from the Sinai peninsula attacked an Egyptian military outpost, and tried to infiltrate the border with Israel on Sunday, the IDF spokesman confirmed on Sunday.

The spokesman said that at 8 P.M. on Sunday evening, GOC Southern Command Maj. Gen. Tal Russo, who was at the Amitai base in southern Israel, heard shooting from the area near the Kerem Shalom border crossing, on Philadelphi Road, on the border between Israel and Gaza.

“After the fact, we learned that a group from the Sinai took control of an Egyptian military post, killed between 10 and 15 Egyptians, and stole two armored vehicles called Fahds. At 8:05 P.M., one of the vehicles exploded at the Kerem Shalom crossing, and another breached the border fence and entered Israeli territory. A few moments later, we hit the vehicle from the air.”

At this point, the IDF still does not know if the first armored vehicle contained explosives or not. First reports of the situation indicate that there were no IDF casualties, and there was no attempt to kidnap Israelis or IDF soldiers.Read More
