IDF has heightened its alert level in southern Israel and along the Egyptian border, after several intelligence tips of intentions to carry out terror attacks on the Israel-Egypt border.
On August 19, Eight Israelis were killed and 30 more wounded during a well-planned terror attack along the Israeli-Egyptian border.
The attack was planned in the Gaza Strip by the Popular Resistance Committees and perpetrated by terrorists who crossed from Gaza into Sinai via smuggling tunnels. They then traveled some 200 kilometers to reach an area of the border protected only by a tattered wire fence, about 15 kilometers north of Eilat.
