Defense Minister Ya’alon inspects boosted Eilat defenses

“We have indeed strengthened our deployment along the [Egyptian] border,” said Defense Minister Moshe Ya’alon on a visit Monday to Israel’s southernmost town, Eilat, to inspect military readiness to repel terrorist attacks from Sinai, and the Iron Dome anti-missile battery installed there his last week. "We hear reports every day of attacks there and our concern is that the guns will be turned on us," said the minister. DEBKAfile reported Monday, July 22, that Israel has been alerted to Salafist radicals planning a major strike inside southern Israel from Sinai or the Gaza Strip.
