The Taba Border Crossing on Sunday was closed to Israelis trying to enter Egypt, anyone carrying a foreign passport was allowed to cross the border as usual.

The decision came after the IDF on Friday announced that forces on the Israel-Egypt border had been placed on high alert after threats were received that Hamas was planning terror activity in the area, the IDF spokesman's office stated.
