Door het incapabele Egyptische leger zien terroristen hun kans schoon om Israëlisch grondgebied te infiltreren. Na de laatste aanslag waarbij 8 Israëliërs door terroristen werden vermoord heeft Israël de staat van paraatheid in de Negev drastisch verhoogd. Deze verhoogde paraatheid wisten Israëlische eenheden op dinsdag een terroristische aanslag te verijdelen.
During the course of the night, the anti-smuggling forces operating near the Egyptian-Israeli border identified a person, who subsequently threw away a bag and ran from the location.
The forces initiated a search and came across the bag the man had abandoned. Inside it, they found a powerful explosive device.
Sappers detonated the device to dispose of it.
The IDF said the incident was a reminder that smuggling routes are constantly being exploited by terrorist organizations working to carry out attacks against Israeli civilians and soldiers. Alertness by soldiers and successful operations are responsible for preventing terror attacks against Israel and its citizens, the IDF said.
An IDF officer said the explosive device military and police forces found Tuesday morning near the Egyptian-Israeli border had the potential to cause a large number of casualties, Israel Radio reported Tuesday afternoon.
The executive officer of Yahalom - a special elite combat engineering unit - said the cargo contained spray pellets and remote detonation devices controlled via mobile phones, according to Israel Radio. He added that it was unclear whether the terrorists who placed the bomb intended to use it against IDF soldiers along the border, or whether they intended to use it in another location.
Lang leve de 18- en 19 jarigen van de IDF. Het meest scherpzinnige en morele leger ter wereld.
