Israel: Regime shutters Egypt border crossing following terror warning against tourists

Source: New York Daily News

“Israel closed its Taba border crossing to Egypt Monday following a warning by its anti-terrorism office of an ‘imminent’ militant attack there. The closure comes hours before the start of the Passover holiday, when Sinai is a popular destination for many Israelis. Soon after the announcement, sirens wailed in parts of southern Israel alerting residents to a rocket attack. The military said a rocket fired from Sinai exploded in an open field, causing no injuries.” [editor’s note: As often as rockets explode in open fields, causing no injuries, in Israel, providing convenient excuses for something just done or about to be done by the Israeli government, I have to suspect that maybe Israel’s enemies aren’t always the ones firing them – TLK] (04/10/17)
