This past week terrorist events focused on the prevention of a mass-casualty attack in the region of the Kerem Shalom crossing. The attack was carried out by a group of terrorists affiliated with the global jihad. They commandeered two Egyptian APCs after killing at least 16 Egyptian soldiers, and drove them toward the Kerem Shalom crossing. Both APCs were destroyed by the IDF and an estimated eight terrorist operatives were killed. One of the APCs was found to contain a large quantity of explosives and six of the terrorists had explosive belts strapped to their bodies.
