The number of IDF lookouts on the border with Egypt has been doubled in recent months, according to outgoing Field Intelligence Corps, Brig. Gen. Eli Pollack.

"The resources available to us, such as radar and UAVs, have been multiplied several times over," said Brig. Gen. Pollack. "There is a lot of activity on the border, which has resulted in prevention of several attacks along with a reduction in the number of penetrations. Within a year not only will there be a fence – nothing will happen along the Sinai border without us knowing about it," he predicted.

"This year, in Gaza alone, we have prevented dozens of attempted attacks and penetrations thanks to our intelligence gathering capabilities," he said. "If a lookout cannot see something due to fog, the radar picks it up. If something is happening too far away for the combat soldier to see it, it gets picked up by our observation balloons.

Depends upon how much the Egyptian military is going to follow the Muslim Brotherhood leader.

Obviously there is some concern in Israel.

More of a "Iran and Muslim Brohood" get together check just to be on the safe side me thinks.

Even Iran directly could be filtering arms ect. through Egypt to the border now with the aid of the Muslim Brohood.

Unlike our Homeland Security dolts, they do not have instructions to run away.

I hope the IDF lets those jihadis sneak across the border so that the Muzzies think that they are being successful. Next thing you know .50 cal. bullets from out of blue takes each one out.

I just wish Israel would start on the NE side of Gaza and just push them all out into Egypt so the Egyptians have to deal with them.
