Below are photos taken after eight people were reported dead and dozens injured in a three-stage terrorist attack along Israel’s border with Egypt on Thursday.

Terrorists opened fire at an Egged bus traveling on Road 12 near Eilat, and several minutes later, a number of bombs went off next to an IDF patrol traveling along the border with Egypt. There were also reports of mortar fire from Egypt into Israel.

The terrorists apparently then moved on to another spot and fired an anti-tank missile at another vehicle, injuring a number of passengers.
