JERUSALEM – Iranian-trained Islamic terrorists, who on Sunday fired their way through a border crossing along the Gaza-Egyptian-Israeli frontier with a commandeered explosives-laden Egyptian armored carrier, were heading toward Kibbutz Kerem Shalom, Israeli military sources said. That was when Israeli Bedouin border soldiers and an Israel Air Force drone attacked the vehicle and killed the terrorists.
According to military sources, the commander of the IDF Bedouin reconnaissance unit minimized the damage by rerouting all commercial and civilian traffic from the heavily used border roadway as the terrorist attack unfolded.
Israel’s Channel 10 News reported that Israeli military intelligence knew late last week that Sinai-based terrorists, who are loosely affiliated with Hamas and Islamic Jihad, were preparing a series of massive terror attacks on Israel along its borders with Egypt and Gaza. The IDF moved a significant number of soldiers, tanks and aerial units into the nearly 100-mile long border frontier regions to confront any incursion.
While Israeli military and political officials had warned Egyptian Field Marshall Mohamed Hussein Tantawi of growing regional dangers, Tantawi and newly elected Egyptian President Mohamed Morsi refused to confront the Islamic terrorists. However, after the terror group murdered at least 16 Egyptian border guards, Tantawi moved military reinforcements into Sinai and ordered Egyptian soldiers to blow up tunnels meant for smuggling along the Gaza-Egyptian frontier and shutter the Rafah-Gaza border crossing.
Morsi, who is closely aligned with the Muslim Brotherhood while maintaining a cordial relationship with the Hamas leadership in Gaza, publicly blasted Hamas’s military and political leadership for supporting terror operations on Egyptian soil. Though Hamas and the Muslim Brotherhood accused the Mossad of planning the terror attack, Israeli government officials praised Morsi for not employing anti-Israeli propaganda.
In the attack’s aftermath, Israeli news sources said that Tantawi had contacted Israeli Defense Minister Ehud Barak in an attempt to coordinate efforts in combating the growing anarchy in Sinai and Gaza.
Dahi Khalfan Tamim, Dubai’s chief of police, recently told Gulf Arab newspapers that the Muslim Brotherhood and their Hamas, Islamic Jihad and Hizbullah allies were being funded by Iran as part of a coordinated effort to violently overthrow a number of pro-Western Gulf Arab nations and destabilize Egypt and Syria.
Meanwhile, the IDF continues to beef up its forces along the Syrian and Lebanese borders. Earlier this week, an attempt to penetrate the Israeli-Syrian border in the Golan Heights – purportedly by a lone civilian – was thwarted by Israeli forces. And Israeli military intelligence is warning of a potential border attack by an Iranian-trained terror squad along the Golan, as the Iranian-supported government of Syrian dictator Bashar Assad nears collapse.
