Suez security head Major General Adel Refaat said Thursday security has been intensified at the Ahmed Hamdy tunnel and along the Suez Canal because of the incidents taking place in Gaza.

Refaat said that the Armed Forces and police are coordinating to ensure stability, adding that security leaders have inspected the patrols.

On Wednesday and Thursday, Israeli warplanes bombed targets in and around Gaza City, killing 15 Palestinians and injuring at least 150, Gazan medics told AFP.
