Israeli rescue workers in Eilat were on highest alert following explosions at a Sinai beach resort area. Magen David Adom had 20 ambulances waiting at the Taba-Eilat border, prepared to evacuate any wounded Israelis, following three explosions in Dahab that killed at least 30 people and wounded scores. At least three Israelis were wounded, the Jerusalem Post reported. Israel’s Channel 10 reported that the IDF had closed the Taba crossing, preventing vehicles from entering Sinai, though a stream of Israeli vehicles was leaving Egypt. Previous bombings in the Sinai had targeted Israeli tourists.
