Egyptian soldiers take part in a military operation in the Egyptian city of Rafah, near the border with the southern Gaza Strip on Nov. 01, 2014, as Egypt began setting up a buffer zone along the border with the Hamas-run territory to prevent militant infiltration and arms smuggling following a wave of deadly attacks. The move, which is set to result in the demolition of hundreds of homes, comes after a suicide bombing in the Sinai Peninsula killed at least 30 soldiers last week. Photo by Abed Rahim Khatib
