IDF: No Inflitration from Egypt

The IDF said Monday night that a rumor regarding “suspicious figures” who might have crossed the border from Sinai in to Israel was just that, and that there had been no intrusion. Earlier, on the basis of reports that terrorists may have infiltrated Israel, the IDF set up roadblocks and began conducting searches in the area of the border with Sinai.

The IDF said that it appeared that several individuals had crossed the border into Israel, but had returned to Sinai, apparently realizing they had gotten lost.
