Defense Minister Ehud Barak on Sunday night praised IDF soldiers in the South and the Shin Bet (Israel Security Agency) for thwarting the attempted terror attack at the Kerem Shalom crossing on the border with Egypt.

Barak stated that the attack could have potentially caused multiple casualties.

"The terror operatives' actions put renewed emphasis on the need for persistent Egyptian action to bring security and prevent terror in Sinai," Barak stated.
