a three-stage terrorist attack along Israel’s border with Egypt on
Thursday, which began when terrorists opened fire at an Egged bus
traveling on Road 12 near Eilat.Several minutes later, a number of bombs went
off next to an IDF patrol traveling along the border with Egypt. There
were also reports of mortar fire from Egypt into Israel. The terrorists
apparently then moved on to another spot and fired an anti-tank missile
at another vehicle, injuring a number of passengers.
