EL-ARISH, Egypt (Ma’an) — Egyptian security officials have expressed concerns after recent violence in Gaza despite Cairo’s efforts to secure a truce between Israel and Palestinian factions.

Security officials said Wednesday that Egypt “will not allow” a renewed Israeli operation against Gaza, in light of changes since the ouster of Hosni Mubarak, seen as supportive of Israel.

The Egyptian people refuse to accept Israel’s “wide scale aggression” and the military council and Egyptian security forces would not be able to prevent regular citizens from going toward the border, they said.

Separately, security officials have also said that two Palestinian rockets landed south of Rafah during the latest flare up in violence in which 12 members of Islamic Jihad’s armed wing and an Israeli civilian died.
