Terrorists Kill 20 Egyptian Soldiers on Border


Egyptian authorities declared an emergency, especially in the Rafah area, Sunday evening, after Salafi terror attacks on two Egyptian positions in the Rafah area, in which 20 officers and other soldiers were murdered, according to Al-Jazeera. Eyewitnesses say one of the APCs was driven toward an Israeli position in an effort to attack it. The Spokesperson's Office of the Israel Defense Forces said there were no Israeli casualties and downplayed the possibility of Israeli soldiers being abducted or missing despite the attempt to hit the Kerem Shalom Crossing, where the terrorists were killed.
