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.
An IDF investigation is in progress.
