Report: Egypt bans fishing boats in Sinai

Egyptian military forces said that the army is preventing fishing in the vicinity of northern Sinai towns of Rafah, Sheikh Zuweid and El-Arish from last Thursday until further notice. According to the report, the purpose of the decision is to prevent the infiltration of Palestinians and jihad agents from Gaza to Egypt by fishing boats.


According to the sources, the success in closing tunnels along the border have caused infiltration attempts by fishing boats Thursday night, and several boats carrying Palestinian infiltrators have been caught recently by border guard police. (Roi Kais)
