Egypt's Second Army is preparing to deal with "any emergency events" in Sinai as a result of Israeli air strikes on areas of Gaza near the Sinai border, Al-Ahram reported on Thursday afternoon.

The report cited unnamed high-level security sources as saying that the army had put in place measures to deal with "any acts aimed at the border", and that border guards had increased their presence near the border with Israel in accordance with instructions issued by their commanding officers on Wednesday.

Military hospitals in Sinai were also standing by ready to cope with anyone injured near the border, the report said.
