IDF Prepares Following Events in Egypt

 

The IDF is preparing for the possibility that terror organizations will take advantage of uprisings in Egypt to transfer arms and weaponry to the Gaza Strip

Jonatan Urich
Israeli security forces have assessed the security situation over the past few days following the development of events in Egypt where the masses continue to protest against the thirty-year reign of the current president, Hosni Mubarak. According to reports from the country, more than 100 people have been killed thus far.
On Saturday (Jan. 29), the IDF Chief of the General Staff, Lt. Gen. Gabi Ashkenazi, held a meeting to assess the security situation headed by Commander of the Intelligence Corps, Maj. Gen. Aviv Kochavi and with other Intelligence Corps personnel, as well as Southern Command personnel. At the same time, the Ministry of Defense chamber held its own meeting to assess the situation. The Prime Minister, Mr. Benjamin Netanyahu, too, immediately held a conference with security personnel regarding Israel’s stance on the events in Egypt.
Army Radio reported on different IDF evaluations. According to some, the uprisings in Egypt endanger balance in the Middle East, and the army is preparing for the possibility that terror organizations in the Gaza Strip will take advantage of the chaos in Egypt and transport arms and weaponry from Sinai to the Gaza Strip – this as a result of reports from the Al Jazeera news network, according to which Egyptian soldiers have abandoned their posts on the border with the Gaza Strip.
