The IDF spokesperson announced late Tuesday evening that the army had decided to reopen Highway 12 in southern Israel near the border with Israel.

The road was closed last week when the defense establishment decided to temporarily close the road amid tensions in the nearby Sinai Peninsula.

The IDF has increased vigilance in light of fighters linked to Islamic State having taken control of an Egyptian military armored vehicle and tank, creating concern that the Islamists in the volatile region might attempt to break into Israeli territory.
