IDF soldiers reported Monday evening that shots were fired near them along the Egyptian border.

The IDF opened an investigation into the incident and discovered tracks of what appeared to be either drug or people smugglers.

As a result, the IDF raised the level of alert fearing an infiltration by terrorist. The investigation then concluded that the shots were fired by smugglers at an Egyptian military outpost on the Egyptian side of the border and they flew by on the Israeli side of the border.

The IDF then lowered the level of alert to its regular status.
