Israeli military forces successfully foiled an attempt to bring drugs across the border from Egypt into Israel on Thursday.
According to an IDF statement, soldiers spotted a number of suspicious figures allegedly smuggling drugs into Israeli territory from Egypt and dispatched troops to the scene.
The smugglers' vehicle began accelerating toward the soldiers who fired into the air and at the vehicle's wheels, hitting one of the smugglers in the leg and lightly injuring them. Soldiers seized more than 300 kilograms (660 pounds) of drugs worth more than NIS five million ($1.6 million).
