An IDF force fired at two people who approached a prohibited area on the Israeli side of the Egyptian border by vehicle. The IDF has estimated that this is a thwarted smuggling attempt.
The two refused to listen to the soldiers' calls to halt and the soldiers fired at them during the suspect arrest protocol. The two were injured by the shots and evacuated to the Soroka University Medical Center in Beersheba in light to moderate condition. Other suspects fled from the border after hearing the gunshots.
