debkafile reported earlier: A special police force located the gunmen who shot up two Israeli buses north of Eilat and are engaged in a firefight. Casualties are reported. The gunmen attacked an Israeli Egged bus north of Eilat, injuring at least six passengers Thursday, Aug. 18. The 392 bus from Beersheba was attacked on Highway 12 as it passed the Netafim checkpoint on the Israeli-Egyptian border of Sinai on its way to Eilat. Two or three gunmen opened automatic fire on the bus and passing cars after jumping out of a private vehicle which had driven behind the bus. In their attack on the second bus, the gunmen fired an anti-tank weapon as well. In short order, a massive police hunt with helicopter support was mounted the scene of the scenes of attack was sealed to traffic.
debkafile’s military sources: The gunmen may have crossed the border from Sinai where this week the Egyptian army launched a major counter-terror operation against Islamists terrorizing the peninsula and its borderlands. The multiple terrorist attack in Israel may have been in reprisal for the Egyptian crackdown.
