School trips near Eilat canceled over terror threat


Israel’s Education Ministry has canceled school trips to parts of southern Israel following warnings of a terror attack.

School and youth group trips planned for the area around Eilat were canceled Monday and through the rest of the week after the Defense Ministry announced an imminent threat of a terror attack near Eilat. The trip cancellation does not include Eilat.

Work on the Israel-Egypt border fence also was temporarily suspended.

During an attack in August on Highway 12, which runs between Israel’s border with Egypt and Eilat, terrorists entered Israel from the Sinai, killing at least seven Israelis. In the ensuing shootout between the terrorists and Israeli troops, five Egyptian troops also were killed.
