Gunman approaching border near Erez crossing shot. Incident follows interception of two Gazans near Israel-Egypt border
IDF soldiers deployed near Erez crossing killed an armed terrorist approaching the Gaza border fence, Friday. No injuries were reported among the soldiers.
The incident took place near the same area by which a terror cell fired at a restaurant near the Yad Mordechai Junction, earlier this week.
Earlier Friday, the IDF said that Border Guard forces fired at two suspects who infiltrated the Israel-Egypt border overnight.
One of the suspects was killed and the other was injured.
The incident took place near a part of the border fence that is still under construction.
According to available details, the two were identified as residents of Gaza Strip. According to military sources, it is still unclear whether the two were smugglers or terrorists.
An IDF investigation is in progress. (Copyright 2012 © Yedioth Internet 07/13/12)
