Skip to comments.IDF tanks move closer to Egypt border

The IDF has deployed Armored forces near the Israel-Egypt border, moving tanks closer to the fence, Ynet has learned. The unusual move followed Monday's terror attack on defense contractor crews building the new security fence.
The attack claimed the life of Said Phashpashe, 36, from Haifa. Golani soldiers who were scrambled to the area killed two terrorists.
Ynet was able to document the presence of Israeli tanks in close proximity to the border maneuvers which are barred by Jerusalem's peace treaty with Cairo.
The last time the IDF boosted its front-line combat vehicle presence in the sector was in August 2011, following a murderous terror attack by the Islamic Jihad, which left nine Israelis dead.
At the time, the military deployed several armored personnel carriers along the border, as part of the heightened security measures in the sensitive area.
Ynet's chief military commentator Ron Ben Yishai noted that several months ago, Israel and Egypt arrived at an agreement by which Cairo would be able to deploy 20 tanks near the border, to ward off attacks by Bedouins on Egyptian forces, despite the fact that such a move contradicts the peace treaty.
It is likely that the deal also allowed Israel to do the same in favor of increased protection for the area's communities.
Gaza Division Southern Brigade Commander Col. Tal Harmoni held a press briefing Monday, following the terror attack: "We are in a race against the clock to close the border," he told reporters. "We have to seal off the border as soon as we can to prevent exactly these kinds of attacks."
Harmoni added that as tragic as the attack's result were, "It could have been far worse a large-scale attack was prevented.
"The IDF has strong ties with the Egyptians forces, who are working tirelessly to thwart such incidents," he concluded.
"I heard the news today oboy"
And today the news that Russia, Iran, Syria and China are coordinating ‘War Games’ in a few weeks.
Where will the war games take place?
Hmmm, let’s see, the gathering of the Revelation forces who will try to annihilate the Jews at the end times ... the neutered United States has a fraudulent leader with designs upon being ‘the leader of the world’ ... the globalists want final control over all world economy and a reduction of the world population ... can we say ‘the end times are upon us, even at the door?
Yes, they are here.
...the gathering of the Revelation forces who will try to annihilate the Jews at the end times...
Spooky. Obama has community organized the Muslim Brotherhood into power and the US can’t fix this now. It is going to play out no matter who is elected.
8 And the foolish said unto the wise, Give us of your oil; for our lamps are gone out.
9 But the wise answered, saying, Not so; lest there be not enough for us and you: but go ye rather to them that sell, and buy for yourselves.
10 And while they went to buy, the bridegroom came; and they that were ready went in with him to the marriage: and the door was shut.
11 Afterward came also the other virgins, saying, Lord, Lord, open to us.
12 But he answered and said, Verily I say unto you, I know you not.
13 Watch therefore, for ye know neither the day nor the hour wherein the Son of man cometh.
14 For the kingdom of heaven is as a man travelling into a far country, who called his own servants, and delivered unto them his goods.
You will know the signs of its coming.
Where will the war games take place?
I was wondering the same thing.
And so many do not even see the signs of the times, much less compare them to the prophecies God has given to us from nearly 2000 years ago and before (read Ezekiel and Daniel and Isaiah and Jeremiah). “God and Magog sittin’ on the fence, tryin’ to make a satan out of fifteen aints.”
Spooky. Obama has community organized the Muslim Brotherhood into power and the US cant fix this now. It is going to play out no matter who is elected.
That’s right. All this fighting about Obama and Romney is really senseless.
Something tells me near the plains of Megiddo...
Thanks Errant. I had missed that.
I would like to see confirmation of the Chinese moving ships to the area. That may be Iranian wishful thinking on their part. As far as I’ve heard, Russia is moving only two ships with about 500 troops each and flying in advanced missles and etc.
I think they’ll be finding dead Russian’s in freezers like they did in Libya ,well they found one dead Russian in a freezer in Libya
Israel could probably put an end to this by bouncing a dummy bomb, labeled “20 KT”, off of the Aswan dam.
Might have to shoot down a bit of the Egyptian Air Force on the way in, though.
WAR IS COMING!
1. Israel hits Iran in the next few days or weeks.
2. Syria Hits Israel
3. Egypt hits Israel, Israel invades Gaza, Sini.
4. Naval action at sea off Syria—Russian ships sunk by Sub.
5. Obama gives a speech and goes to UN.
6. Turkey is attacked by Syria.
7. Iran closes off oil—sinks tankers.
Get ready! Obama will use this to take away all rights “for the duration of the war”. Look to see new 9-11s using trucks, trains and buses. Then China swings in on Russia’s side and invades Vietnam and Taiwan—as North Korea moves south on South Korea. By December—there will be a draft as casualties mount! Ships will be pulled out of mothballs, we will be buying ships to convert into warcraft and troop transports. WalMart will be forced to sell American made goods! Illegal Aliens will be forced into the army—men and women. The Russians will take down the grid—the internet will be a memory and go the way of the old time service station. On a good note: there will be lots of jobs! Best business to have —A US Flag company!
