Border fence with Egypt 370.
IDF Chief of Staff Lt.-Gen. Benny Gantz has banned civilian traffic from sections of Route 10 that run near the Egyptian border, the army announced Thursday. Civilians will not be permitted to drive near the border without prior coordination with the army for a year, according to the new directive. In August 2011, a cross-border terror attack from the Sinai Peninsula killed eight Israelis on the road, leading OC Southern Command, Maj.-Gen. Tal Russo, to seal it off to traffic.
