Egypt reportedly closed on Thursday the Rafah border crossing, which is the only crossing from the Gaza Strip into the Sinai peninsula, Channel 2 reported. The announcement came a few hours after the deadly triple terrorist attack that occurred 28 kilometers north of Eilat.

Earlier Egypt's South Sinai governor Khaled Fouda denied reports that gunmen had opened fire on Israeli vehicles from Sinai in which several people were killed, state television said.
