Several dead, others hurt in attacks in Israel - World news - Mideast/N. Africa - msnbc.com

JERUSALEM — Assailants armed with heavy weapons, guns and explosives launched three attacks in quick succession in southern Israel near the border with Egypt's Sinai Peninsula on Thursday, killing at least five people and wounding about a dozen more, officials said.

The rare violence in that part of the country targeted a passenger bus, a military patrol and a private car, officials said.

Channel 10 TV reported a fourth attack by gunmen, but there was no official confirmation or details. The military said a "large number" of assailants were working in multiple squads.

Israeli ambulance services said five people had been killed in the attack, The Associated Press reported, although Reuters reported six deaths. There was no immediate explanation for the discrepancy.

"Terrorists fired at a bus on its way to (the city of) Eilat and fired an anti-tank rocket at another vehicle," Israel's military said in a statement according to Reuters. "At the same time, a military patrol hit an explosive device."

Israel's Haaretz newspaper said that mortars were also fired from the nearby Egyptian border.

Fears coming from Egypt
The attacks will likely fuel concerns that Egyptian security forces are losing control of the Sinai desert region bordering Israel following the ouster of Egypt's longtime autocratic leader, Hosni Mubarak, earlier this year.

Israeli officials have voiced concern that militant groups in the Sinai have been making use of a security vacuum left by the overthrow of President Hosni Mubarak in February.

Egypt, which signed a peace treaty with Israel in 1979, recently stepped up security activity in the Sinai desert, which borders the Jewish state and the Gaza Strip.

Egyptian security sources said on Tuesday that an army crackdown on armed groups in the northern Sinai had netted four Islamist militants as they prepared to blow up a gas pipeline.





Now aren't we glad we got rid of Mubarak.



This is just the beginning.

EILAT, (PIC)-- Five were killed and 25 injured in two attacks on Israeli buses carrying soldiers near the southern occupied city of Um al-Rashrash (Eilat) on Thursday, Hebrew media reported.

They said that the Egged buses were mainly carrying soldiers and were heading from Beer Sheba to Eilat when they came under fire but continued their ride until they reached an Israeli military barrier. Reports indicated that a projectile was fired at the second bus which caused the deaths.

At least six people were killed in the airstrikes, Palestinian sources said.

Earlier, Israeli Defence Minister Ehud Barak said Israel would respond with "full force and determination" after attacks on vehicles near Eilat.

Israeli officials said Gazan militants were responsible, though Gaza's Hamas government denied involvement.

Update:
Assailants launch multiple attacks in Israel - Yahoo! News

There will be no peace as long as Israel occupies Palestine.

Allah, oh our Lord
Vanquish your enemies, enemies of the religion [Islam]
in all places
Allah, strike the Jews and their sympathizers,
the Christians and their supporters
the Communists and their adherents
Allah, count them and kill them to the last one,
and don't even leave even one.

This is just the tip of the iceberg.

When Syrai falls, it's going to be a shit storm for Israel.

Chances are this is going to escalate and possibly get epic

Israel kicked the Syrians' asses before and we'll do it again, dimwit.:lol:

First off; Fuck you, I'm well away of the history.

Secondly, times have changed and Israel has worn out it's welcome in it's main ally.

People have not forgotten the USS Liberty nor do people support pouring money out in foreign aide as they used to.

third, terrorist are far harder to handle than soldiers.

always happy to learn that muslims will never seek peace, ever.
