Speaking from his office at the Defense Ministry headquarters in Tel
Aviv, the defense minister added that the IDF was assessing the security situation
along the border with Egypt."The attacks
demonstrate the weakening of Egypt's control over the Sinai peninsula
and the expansion of terrorist activity there," Barak said, adding
"These attacks originate in Gaza and we will act against them with full
force and resolve."
Commander of the IDF's Edom Division, which is responsible for the
border with Egypt, Brig.-Gen. Tamir Yidayi said that he had set up a
