Israel says the overnight blasts in the Egyptian resort towns of Taba and Nuweiba were caused by Houthi terrorists who were trying to harm Israel.

“The Houthis are a proxy of the Ayatollah’s terrorist regime in Teheran, which also controls the Hezbollah, Islamic Jihad and Hamas terrorist organizations,” Foreign Ministry spokesperson Lior Haiat says in a statement condemning the harm caused to Egypt’s security forces in the strikes.
