JERUSALEM, July 28 (UPI) -- An al-Qaida-linked terror group released a video showing members preparing for a June attack that killed an Israeli on the Egyptian border, officials said.

The video, released Friday by the Mujahideen Shura Council, shows members of the group tracking Israeli military activity along the border, as well as terrorists preparing an explosive device and other plans for the June 18 attack, Ynetnews reported.

On June 18, members from the group breached Israel's southern border, fired a rocket-propelled grenade and shot at laborers building the border fence. One of the workers, Said Phashpashe, 36, was killed.

Israeli forces returned fire and killed two of the terrorists.

The terrorists were also meant to set off a bomb near an Israeli military patrol car, the video states.

A man in the video said he hoped the group would carry out more attacks on Jews in the future.

"We are a nation that doesn't know what humiliation is," another terrorist is heard saying. "We are like missiles that you never have and never will develop."

"We will soon carry out a double suicide attack meant to harm the Jewish enemy's forces on Egypt's border with the occupied Palestine," another person said in the video.
