RAFAH, (PIC)– An Egyptian Apache helicopter flew over the Palestinian Rafah city, south of the Gaza Strip, for more than an hour on Sunday night.
PIC reporter quoted eyewitnesses as saying that the helicopter flew over border suburbs for almost an hour and surveyed the tunnels area.
An Egyptian Apache copter had gone on a similar mission ten days ago over Rafah and Khan Younis for half an hour, which the Egyptian presidency spokesman described as a mission to protect Egyptian sovereignty.
Security chaos has been plaguing the Sinai Peninsula as of late due to the political turmoil in that Arab country after the army ousted elected president Mohammed Morsi more than two weeks ago.
