Camp of Cambyses' army found?

ARCHAEOLOGY: Persian Military Base Used to Invade Egypt Reportedly Found in Israel (Sputnik News).
Ruins of an ancient camp that was possibly used by Persian ruler Cambyses II as a staging ground for the invasion of Egypt some 2,500 years ago were unearthed by archaeologists in northern Israel, Haaretz reports.
The Haaretz article is in the premium section and I can't access the full text. But this article has a summary of it. Another summary (noted by Joseph Lauer) by Archaeology Magazine is here.
