Egypt beefs up military presence in Sinai
The move is part of a broader response to Sunday's attack in Sinai, in which terrorists killed 16 Egyptian soldiers at a border post.
As part of a crackdown on terrorism and arms smuggling, the Egyptian army on Tuesday began beefing up its presence in the area where the borders of Israel, Egypt and Gaza converge, and particularly in the area nearest the Gaza Strip.
