Israeli troops killed three “terrorists” who attacked a construction crew as it was building a security fence along the border with Egypt. One of the terrorists was wearing a suicide vest.
More than 10 Egyptian soldiers were killed as an al Qaeda-linked terror group overran an outpost, seized two armored personnel carriers, and crossed into Israel. Israeli troops destroyed one of the APCs, and killed six terrorists. In a separate operation, the Israeli Air Force targeted a Mujahideen Shura Council “terrorist squad” that was plotting future attacks.
Jund al Sharia called for the establishment of Islamic law and threatened to attack US peacekeepers in the Sinai if they do not withdraw.
