An Israeli citizen and two terrorists were killed Monday morning
during clashes between Israel Defense Forces soldiers and gunmen who
infiltrated the southern border with Egypt. An initial investigation
reveals that three terrorists penetrated the fence along the
Gaza-Sinai border and placed an explosive device on the Philadelphi
strip waiting for Israeli vehicles to pass by. After several minutes,
the device exploded on one of the vehicles, and the gunmen opened
fire. The IDF's Golani Brigade arrived at the scene and began
exchanging fire with the armed men. At least two terrorists were
killed as a result of the firefight, and IDF soldiers began searching
for the third terrorist. Israeli communities near the border have been
put on high alert, and Route 10 and 12 were blocked for incoming
traffic for several hours. Responding to the attack, Defense Minister
Ehud Barak said that Israel expected the new president in Egypt -
whoever it is - to retake control of the Sinai Peninsula and to clear
out its terrorist infrastructure.
