A number of roads along the Egyptian border were closed to the public, Monday morning, following the terror attack on Nitzana that resulted in the death of an Israeli and at least three terrorists. Highway 211 was blocked off between Mash'avei Sadeh and Ketzi'ot. Additional roadblocks were set up at the Kemehin and Kadesh Barnea' junctions. Routes 10 and 12 were also closed to traffic.
Large numbers of Israeli troops were deployed in the area.
