At least 15 Egyptian soldiers were killed in a surprise attack near the Rafah border crossing in Sinai by supposedly militant masked jihadists, several of whom were killed by Israeli forces when they crossed the border into Israel.

Travellers should be aware that overland travel between Israel and the Sinai can be dangerous. Kidnappings have been reported in the past.
