The Egyptian army thwarted an attack against Israel on Wednesday night, killing a suicide bomber who ran towards the border near Kerem Shalom, Egyptian military sources said.

The Egyptian sources told the Palestinian Ma'an News Agency in a report published Thursday that the suicide bomber carried an explosive device as well as wearing an explosive belt on his body.

The sources also said that the army destroyed a vehicle loaded with Grad rockets before they were fired at Israel.

The attack on the vehicle killed two individuals, taking place in the north Sinai town of Sheikh Zuweid near the border with the Gaza Strip.
