The IDF has re-opened roads and lifted an order for residents to remain in their homes following a deadly attack killing one Israeli along the Israel-Egypt border.
IDF Golani brigade soldiers returned fire, killing two terrorists who had detonated a road-side bomb beneath a car containing construction workers. One workman was killed, another seriously injured.
The IDF instituted the emergency closures due to concern that additional terrorists had entered Israel during the attack.
