ABSTRACT
The article reports that the Israel Defence Forces (IDF) has launched air strikes at Rafah, Gaza following the August 18, 2011 terrorist attacks near Eilat, Israel. The action killed members of the Popular Resistance Committees, whom Israel believes to be behind the attacks. The IDF claims that the terrorists entered Israel from Egypt's Sinai, saying their point of origin was Tahrir Square in Cairo, Egypt. The new Egyptian government's alleged weakening of its hold on Sinai is discussed.
