The Ministry of Education has cancelled all school trips south of Highway 12 which runs along the Israel-Egypt border. The IDF believes there is a strong possibility of a terror attack in that area emanating from the Sinai.

 

The IDF is concerned of either a Palestinian or Egyptian attack with the objective of kidnapping or killing Israelis hiking the area, with the ultimate goal of harming what’s left of Israeli-Egyptian relations.

 

On August 18th a terror attack from the Sinai killed 8 Israelis.

 

Due to the growing terror threat from Egypt, the IDF has established a new combat brigade in the Eilat area and is working to complete the fence dividing the two countries.

 

School trips will still continue with the city of Eilat itself.
