Egyptian security sources said on Thursday that a bus ambush north of Eilat was unlikely to have come from Egyptian territory.

Security patrols on the Egyptian-Israeli border had not picked up on "suspicious movements" on the Egyptian side, a source said, adding that security had been heightened on the border after news of the attack.    

Egyptian security sources said on Tuesday that an army crackdown on armed groups in the northern Sinai had netted four Islamist terrorists as they prepared to blow up a gas pipeline.
