IDF Chief of Staff Lt.-Gen. Benny Gantz decided Monday morning to significantly beef up military forces along Israel's southern border with the Gaza Strip and Egypt in wake of intelligence information that Palestinian terrorists were planning a large attack against Israel.

According to the intelligence warning, Islamic Jihad terrorists are plotting the attack. Israel has in the past said that it views Hamas as responsible for all terror that originates in the Gaza Strip.

The IDF updated the Egyptian military about the decision early Monday morning.

The order came almost two weeks after eight people were killed in a three-stage terrorist attack along Israel’s border with Egypt.
