IOF to impose buffer zone near the Egyptian border

IOF to impose buffer zone near the Egyptian border
 
NAZARETH, (PIC)-- Israeli occupation forces (IOF) announced plans to impose a buffer zone at the borders with Egypt in light of the volatile security situation in the Sinai Peninsula, Hebrew media revealed.
Israeli army radio reported that the IOF will establish in the coming days a buffer zone that bans Israelis from approaching the Egyptian borders no less than three hundred meters.
The resolution is in its final stages and only needs the chief of the Israeli General Staff's signature to be implemented, the radio added.
The radio quoted a senior official in the Israeli army as saying that whoever wants to enter that area has to get a special permit after prior coordination with the concerned authorities in the Israeli army.
