A terror attack on Israelis in the Sinai was narrowly averted some two months ago, Channel 2 quoted security officials as saying Wednesday. The officials said that in the incident, terrorists caught up with a bus carrying Israeli tourists from Taba to Sharm e-Sheikh and attempted to fire an explosive at the vehicle. Only a technical malfunction prevented the attack from succeeding, according to the officials.
