A Palestinian waves Egyptian and Palestinian flags near a tent for giving condolences for 16 Egyptian soldiers who were killed Sunday during an attack on an Egyptian military checkpoint by Islamic militants with purported ties to Gaza, in Gaza City, Monday, Aug. 6, 2012. A senior Egyptian official alleged that Hamas has failed to prevent militants from slipping in and out of the Sinai desert through tunnels. "After Egyptian blood was spilled, we will not accept words of condemnation, denials or failing to take responsibility," the official said of Hamas.
