One of the terrorists, Anis Abu Mahmoud el-Anin, was in the final stages of planning an attack against Israeli civilians. The other terrorist, Ashraf Mahmoud Salah, had admitted in a previous investigation to helping others plan attacks on Israel from Egypt.

The IDF has become more concerned with Gaza terrorists taking advantage of the situation in Egypt to launch attacks against Israel. Both men were also involved in smuggling weapons into Gaza, the IDF said.
