The border closure comes a day after militants in Egypt bombed two churches, killing dozens of Christian worshippers during Palm Sunday ceremonies. In the wake of those attacks, Israel’s anti-terrorism office called on all Israeli tourists in Sinai to return home immediately and asked Israelis planning trips to the Sinai to cancel.

ISRAEL CLOSED ITS TABA BORDER CROSSING TO THE SINAI PENINSULA ON MONDAY FOLLOWING WARNINGS BY ITS ANTI-TERRORISM OFFICE OF AN “IMMINENT” MILITANT ATTACK THERE AND URGED ITS CITIZENS TO LEAVE EGYPT HOURS BEFORE THE START OF THE PASSOVER HOLIDAY, WHEN SINAI IS A POPULAR DESTINATION FOR MANY SECULAR ISRAELIS.

Soon after the announcement, sirens wailed in parts of southern Israel alerting residents to a rocket attack. The military said a rocket fired from Sinai exploded in southern Israel, hitting a greenhouse but causing no injuries. The Islamic State group later claimed responsibility for the attack.

Yisrael Katz, Israel’s transportation and intelligence minister, said in a statement Monday there was intel regarding a potential “terror attack” against tourists in the Sinai peninsula. The crossing remains open for those wanting to return from Egypt.
