Last night’s attempted terror attack at the Kerem Shalom border with Egypt made the news today, when the IDF and IAF jointly killed the terrorists trying to break into Israel and destroyed the armored vehicle they had hi-jacked.
This incident is not isolated though. Friends with husbands doing reserve duty in the area say that there are attempted attacks all of the time, and that most of them do not get into the news.
I am always grateful when the Israeli news is “boring”. Political scandals, extreme weather, and street protests making headlines means that (for the most part) the Jews living here are safe. Last night’s news just highlights that our soldiers are always on guard.
It will be very interesting to see how this plays out in Egypt though. They must be angry that terrorists from Gaza killed 15 of their own – during Ramadan too. They have already closed down the border crossing with Gaza…(well, would you look at that! When terrorists attack your people you close the border down to protect your own. I wonder how long it will take for the media to scream bloody murder about Egypt causing Palestinians to suffer….)
