As Purim approaches, thousands of Israeli children and families grapple with poverty
The IDF and Israel Police uncovered a powerful explosive device overnight while on an anti-smuggling operation.
According to the IDF Spokesperson, “Israeli forces that were trying to stop smugglers saw a man throw a suspicious bag and flee the scene. After an examination…it was determined that the bag contained a powerful explosive device. The device was later detonated in a controlled manner.”
The Spokesperson also said that the incident is “a reminder that the smuggling routes on the Israel-Egypt border are constantly used by terrorist organizations to conduct operations against Israeli civilians and IDF soldiers.”
In 2011, over 15,000 illegal immigrants crossed Israel’s porous border with Egypt.
