An IDF commander arrived Thursday afternoon at the Egypt-Israel border, and told those gathered on behalf of the approximately 20 asylum seekers stranded on the Egyptian side of the border fence that IDF medical teams are monitoring the situation and giving the migrants fluids, but not food.

The commander said he could not grant anyone access to the asylum seekers for security reasons nor allow food to be distributed to them.

The crowd of approximately two dozen supporters appeared to be preparing to disperse from the scene.
