On August 18, 2011, a series of cross-border attacks with parallel attacks and mutual cover was carried out in southern Israel on Highway 12 near the Egyptian border by a squad of presumably 12 militants in four groups. The attacks occurred after Israels interior security service Shin Beth had warned of a terror attack in the region and massive Israeli troops had been stationed in the area. The militants first opened fire at an Egged No. 392 bus as it was traveling on Highway 12 in the Negev near Eilat. Several minutes later, a bomb was detonated next to an Israeli army patrol along Israels border with Egypt. In a third attack, an anti-tank missile hit a private vehicle, killing four civilians. Eight Israelis - six civilians, one Yamam special Unit police officer and one Golani Brigade soldier-were killed in the multiple-stage attack. The Israeli security forces reported eight attackers killed, and Egyptian security forces reported killing another two.
