Route12, bordering Egypt, was opened to traffic on Sunday morning for the first time since being closed in August when eight Israelis were killed in the area in a multi-pronged terror attack emanating from Sinai, according to the IDF Spokesman's Office.

The road will be opened from the Sayarim Junction to the Netafim checkpoint from 8:00 am to 5:00 pm.

The IDF stated that security improvements made along the route in the aftermath of the attack enabled the road's opening.
