IDF forces opened fire on two individuals who were riding all terrain vehicles on Friday evening and who entered a closed military area close to the border with Egypt, an IDF spokesperson confirmed.
When the forces fired warning shots and the suspects did not stop, the soldiers opened fire and wounded them, the spokesperson said.
The suspects were subsequently evacuated to hospital for treatment, according to the IDF. One of the suspects died of his wounds.
