Maan News Agency | Sept 26, 2011

TEL AVIV, Israel (Ma’an) — Israel on Saturday closed its Taba border crossing to Egypt to Israeli travelers due to security concerns, the Israeli daily Haaretz reported.

On Sunday, the ban was restricted to areas around the border crossing, including hotels and casinos in Taba.

The border remained open to non-Israeli tourists, Haaretz reported.

On Friday, the Israeli military said it had “increased its preparedness and raised its alertness following concrete information regarding the Hamas’, as well as other terror organizations, intentions to execute another terrorist attack along the Egyptian border in the very near future.”
