After an IDF soldier was killed while his unit was providing aid to African migrants along the Egyptian border, Interior Minister Eli Yishai on Sunday said the army should forbid soldiers from making contact with those arriving at the border.

"The IDF should advance a clear order forbidding soldiers making contact with infiltrators," Yishai said, making a comparison between the proposed change to a ban on soldiers hitchhiking.

"The screams of human rights organizations are preferable to the screams of bereaved families," the interior minister expounded.
